IXTRODUCTIOX 

This book has been in the process of research and compilation during 
more than a half century-. Probably the beginning was achieved by Milon 0. 
Cluu, a descendant of John Clough through the lines of Thomas, his second 
son, and Isaac, his grandson. From the spelling of his name, Milon was evi- 
dently from the Salem, N. H. group who decided to change the name from 
Clough to Cluff for personal reasons. Mr. Cluff was born in 1851 and his 
contacts and memories dated back at least 100 years. His research proved 
accurate in the lines that he traced. Clarence B. Cluff, the son of Milon 0. 
Cluff, compiled his father's papers into three typed notebooks and after his 
death in 1946 his wife, Laura E. (Risley) Cluff, generously sent these books 
from her home in Wyoming, Ohio, to Mrs. Isaiah W. Lincoln of Tortland, 
Maine, who was then busily searching for the branches of the Clough Family 
in Maine. 

Unfortunately, when the John Clough Genealogical Society was organized 
in 1939, the years of work of Milon O. Cluff were unknown outside of his 
immediate family. Samuel C. Clough of West Roxbury, Mass. was then ap- 
pointed genealogist for the Society. He was a man with years of historical 
and genealogical research to his credit, especially in relation to the original 
streets and owners of the houselots of Old Boston. Mr. Clough duplicated 
much of the research of Milon O. Cluff, perhaps not entirely without certain 
advantages, for his studies seemed to verify the other's work. 

Mr. Clough arranged charts upon sheets of paper about 3' x 2' with ver- 
tical colums for the ten generations, and horizontal lines for each descendant 
of John Clough of Salisbury. When the Society gathered for its annual re- 
unions, these charts were hung in order around the walls of the assembly 
rooms and members consulted them and added data about their parentage. 
Thus cooperation was generated from the older members and reams of letters 
and sheets of lineage were sent to Mr. Clough. All of this material was metic- 
ulously arranged for future reference, either in boxes or in loose leaf notebooks, 
by Mr. Clough.

connected with this group. Various members of this second S^cil

INTRODUCTION 

After the death of Samuel C. Clough, the Board of Governors ap[)ointcd 
Eva Clough Speare (Mrs. Guy Edwin) of Plymouth, N'. H. to continue the 
work with the assistance of the other members. Vivian Sutherland Lord (Mrs. 
Erskine D.) of Marblehead, Mass. came into possession of many records in 
her line of Isaac — 3 Clough of Salem, N. H. and Mrs. Lord compiled all of this 
lineage for the book. Ruth Cluff Knight (Mrs. Henry M. of Alfred, Maine 
read all of the old records of York County, Maine and discovered the lineage 
of the branches that stemmed from Samuel — 4 Clough. Miss Gertrude J. 
Clough of Bristol, Conn, made a special study of the vital records of the State 
of Vermont for the Clough lineage. Miss Nell E. Swain of DeKalb, Illinois 
did both research for her Connecticut lineage and also acted as typist for many 
pages of the manuscript. 

Original church record books, ancient family papers that have been 
discovered in attics. Family Bibles, vital records, probate records, deeds and 
wills, either originals or copies in State Record Files, and all of the available 
reference works have been searched for accurate data. 

In 1943, "The Story of the Family of John Clough of Salisbury, Massa- 
chusetts" was published by the John Clough Genealogical Society. Reference 
to that book is made at times in the pages of this Genealogy. Both books 
should be available for consultation to clearly understand the entire history 
of the work of the John Clough Genealogical Society, Inc. 

Fortunately, the problem of finance has not been difficult. The first Vice 
President of the John Clough Genealogical Society was John A. Clough of 
Worcester, Mass. After the death of the founder, Walter Cluff of Kansas 
City, Missouri, Mr. Clough became the second President and continued to 
serve until his death in 1945. Generous contributions were given to the treasury 
by both Walter Cluff and John A. Clough and only a few weeks before his 
death, the latter sent five hundred dollars to the treasurer, Joseph L. Clough 
of Nashua and Tilton, N. H., to be used for the work of the Society. This 
fund has paid the expense of compilation. When the will of John A. Clough 
was read, the Executive Secretary, Percy R. Cluff of North Waterboro, Maine 
was informed that a legacy of $5000.00 was bequeathed to the Society. In his 
last address before the Society, Mr. Clough expressed his desire that a Clough 
Museum might be established and that a genealogy might be compiled and 
published. The intention of the Society is to fulfill these last wishes of its 
generous second President.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF WALTER C 

In 1939, our founder, \V:i:ier Cluff, came to New li;;;;-. . 
his ancestral heritage, from his home in Kansas City. Fori 
corresponded with our wizard in genealogical research, Bcrnice ."!>" 
of JManciiestcr, N. H., who traced his line for him to the homcsti ■■d 
X. H., that v.-as razed when the present gymnasium of the Uni , er 
Hampshire was erected on its site. 

Walter Chiff was a descendant of the eldest son of Jo;; ..- 
fust grand.son, Bcnoiii. The laiter's son, Ichabod, lived in Ki:. .1 
his son, Zacheus became a blacksmith. This line was restless. Z. 
W'illiam, moved to Durham and then to Canada, only to r>.-.. 
after a few years. Then his son, David, started toward the .•.'. 
journey, David, the grandfather of Walter, encountered the M>v:. 
tion and traveled with Brigham Young to Utah. The sufferin ; . 
pilgrimage have been recorded in a book that may be found a.. >.■- 
data in the possession of Samuel C. Clough. 

Walter's father, Benjamin was a carpenter in Coalville, U. h. 
and three daughters were born before Walter whose birthday ■. as 
ber 27, 1876. A part of his early childhood was lived on a farn, in 
After the older children were married, the parents with two t> ns, 
Walter, moved to Arizona in 1892. On this trip, Walter was gh. an . 
task of looking after the horses that were taken along. 

Various kinds of employment filled the following three y.ar. 
memories, especially when hauling lumber from the mount;..;.;;,

It was customary for the Mormon Church to call its youui ic ....^, .. .'.ary 
efforts to spread their faith throughout the West, and from his studies Walter 
was sent, "without purse or script," through Colorado and New ^.Icxico. The 
hardships of this experience of two years were too torturing 10 be re-iived.

was called to pay. He was a very good preacher and Bible student after these 
two years. 

Upon his release from this experience, Walter returned to his scIidoI. .\n 
ambition to become a teacher had been instilled by his mother and at the a^e 
of twenty-five, he was offered a teaching position. Meanwhile Walter met the 
girl whom he later married. Miss Gertrude Miller, who was attending the 
Brigham Young Academy at Provo. She was only fifteen when they became 
engaged. The following year, Walter taught near her home, and in 1902 they 
decided to be married. 

They went to live in Provo where Waller was teaching and also becoming 
so interested in dramatics that he almost decided to be an actor. But the offer 
of a better position if he would continue his education inlluenced him to go 
to Chicago for summer school. With her three months old baby, Mrs. Chiff 
went home to her parents for the summer. The following June, Walter decided 
that he must secure his college degree. He was obliged to borrow some money 
and to earn more by carrying mail and by selling shoes on Saturdays, yet he 
successfully graduated from Chicago University in 1906. Although he was 
offered teaching positions in and around Chicago, he felt that he should return 
to Provo where his mother was then living. The following two years he was 
associate professor of literature in Brigham Young University. 

Then came an opportunity to go to Colombia, South America, for a tim- 
ber company in March of 1909, where he stayed until October. When her 
daughter, Merl, was six weeks old, Mrs. Cluff received a letter from the com- 
pany saying that Walter had left Colombia and was very ill with malaria. 
After weeks of anxious waiting, the news came that Walter had gone immedi- 
ately upon landing in New York to a hospital for an operation. When he was 
able to come home and report to his company, he was told that it was neces- 
sary that he return to Colombia in January of 1910. He spent an exciting six 
months going up the Magdelena River and into the jungles. Then a man 
bought into the timber company and took the position that Walter expected 
to fill. 

Back the family went to Salt Lake City where Mrs. Cluff's father pre- 
sented them with a lot to build a home. A job of soliciting advertising for 
three months at eight dollars per week was accepted, and so successful was 
this venture that in a short time the pay increased to eighteen dollars. He 
was next an assistant to the credit manager of what was The Consolidated 
Wagon and Machine Company for about two years. Troubles fell thick and

Fortune smiled, however, for a former student persuaded V\';; 
a trip with him to Nevada selling insurance for the Kans:i> 
ance Company which netted more money tlian Walter ever cx.jcc . 
in a year. He bc,t;an this employment in October, 1912, and !.-. Ji.'. 
he qualified to attend the convention of the company in K:. 
he was honored for having written the highest volume of bu.sir.css .^. . 
agent, the amount being more than $100,000 worth of business. 

One reason for his success was his knowledge of the Span! 
which he learned to speak fluently in South America. In Ncva(. 
sheep men were so pleased to speak Spanish with him that he pers.i. . . i..^... 
to buy insurance policies. 

In 1917 Mr. and Mrs. Cluff attended the convention o;' t'

that leveled all barriers between persons of all ages and the ideals in his 
family talks have persisted to this day. 

Life brought hardships to Walter and many accidents to endure. He 
was in a skidding automobile in Idaho when his companion was killed and 
the break in iiis coll.ir bone missed his neck by a fraction of an inch. II(' broke 
his wrist, his ribs, almost hemorrhaged to death with an operation for tonsils, 
but determined to forget the pain immediately. He loved life and the friends 
it gave to him, he was generous both with his personality and his means. He 
was not a perfect individual. No man of such vitality and energy could escape 
irritability even with those whom he loved best, yet the twinkle in his eyes 
and his ready smile dispelled any resentment for this sudden impatience. His 
absolute reliance upon Mrs. Cluff was a delightful characteristic to observe 
and her devotion equalled his need. 

He was a successful husband and father. His children did not feel the 
need for financial aid that he carried in his youth. His daughter, Riva, holds 
her Masters Degree from Teachers College at Columbia University. The son, 
Max, is a Doctor of Medicine and Merl has her Masters of Social Science 
Degree from Western Reserve University in Cleveland. A graduation of some 
kind in a family every year from 1919 to 1934 indicates the regard for 
intellectual attainments that both Mr. and Mrs. Cluff held to be of greatest 
importance for their children. 

The same ambitious program was planned for the Society. The publica- 
tion of volumes of historical data about the Cluffs and a genealogy were 
anticipated. Samuel C. Clough was selected for genealogist and urged to com- 
pile the records of the ancestral heritage. We shall remember our founder 
because he gave his very best to us and asked the same service in return 
from every member of the John Clough Genealogical Society. 

At the very day when the first of the copy for the Clough Book was to 
be placed in his hands, word came that his tired heart had gone to rest on 
April 26, 1943. The obligation to carry on became a spiritual inspiration to 
all of the officers of the Society. "We need all of the uplifting influences," 
were words contained in his final message to us, and to preserve and to con- 
tinue to increase the sense "of family pride" that he taught to us is still the 
purpose of the Society that he bequeathed to the Cluff, Clough Family.

Chapter I 
THE ORIGIN OF THE CLOUGH CLAN 

When the legions of the Roman Empire swept into the region of the 
Caucasus Mountains, the tribes of Celts and later the Teutons fled north- 
ward through Europe until the barrier of the Atlantic Ocean stopped their 
wanderings. During those many centuries a restless spirit possessed these 
homeless tribes and this became a dominant element in their characteristics. 
The love of freedom that impelled them into the northern forests has persisted 
through thousands of years. 

In the ravines of Brittany the Lords of Rohan claimed their domain and 
erected their castle, said by historians to have been the progenitors of the 
Clough Clan. 

This genealogical record of the Family of John Clough demonstrates 
the independent, restless traits of that Englishman who preferred exile from 
his native home to subordination to a government that demanded a com- 
promise with his religious convictions and prevented him from establishing 
his family upon the soil of England. 

Through ten generations, this restless urge has induced this family to 
scatter into the four corners of this nation. To plot the migrations from Salis- 
bury, Massachusetts is a fascinating pastime. To compile a list of predomin- 
ating traits might prove to be a worthwhile pursuit to a student of family 
relations, for the thousands of names in this record belong to a typical 
American family. 

Since confusion is widespread about both the spelling and the pronuncia- 
tion of the name of this branch of the clan, at the outset of this genealogical 
record it may be wise to state that the original founder in New England 
wrote his name, John Clough. He so signed legal papers and also his will. 
His sons spelled the name, Clough, and it is so engraved upon the headstones 
over their graves. 

The pronunciation is determined more by inference than by definite 
proof. On the list of passengers of the Master of the Rolls in London, the

name oi our ancestor is spcHcd, CluiTe, v/hich seems lo be a tori'. 

cation that in the presence of the officials tlie name was pronoun.\iiu^-Ti. - 

spoiled. 

Whether John Clough registered or another person reprC'Ci.ed Vilw, (Ji« 
spolliijg scorns to prove the pronunciation. If John Clough know i,f td'^sptH- 
ing, ho did not correct it. If he desired to conceal his identity, i.e w«/ tinvc 
preferred this spelling. 

Another proof of the pronunciation is found whenever the nawc M^ 
written by a person other than the owner. In lists, on pension p*pew^ aM<< 
especially when a man made his mark the name is spelled, Cluff. Tfiii pto¥ex 
that the owner so pronounced his name. 

Botli the spelling and the pronunciation have become option;.. ..... . iJic 

later generations of the John Clough Family. Descendants of o\k.er Clou^fes 
who migrated to Boston pronounced the name. Clow. Many cf iitt Jekn 
Clough Family did in Boston as the Bostonians did and chari;,.d tKc pro- 
nunciation to C:ow. 

When another group of the John Clough Family settled in the p/ire liundt 
of ]Maine, they spelled the name, Cluff, doubtless to emphasize the ptcMuidi.- 
tion, and their descendants still keep this spelling. 

Let it be understood that when the founder of this Far.iily ezttUiih.tt^. 
his legal rights in New England, the original name as he wrote it is Jata 
Clough and is pronounced Cluff. 

In an article by a reliable authority upon genealogical research, copied 
from the New England Genealogical Register, an assertion reads, ^'^Cc,r:iing 
to the custom of ancient times, the family took its surname from tfc.e place of 
residence." This custom obviously applies to the Clough Family. 

Based upon the highest English authority, it is safe to prefmtie ttcit 
among the craggy ravines of the coast of Brittany in France the frtfenH&'S 
of our family were so distinctly established that either they asjjmfd ,:.i.- nawe 
or their neighbors called them by their place of residence:-- X.ie I<av;;:o 
Men — Cloughs. Among the Celtic tribes, not only in Brittany, al.so in r;.'. 
of the northern countries of Europe and in Britain, a ravine v;as called a 
clough, a word that was derived from an ancient verb that vrat fi^aAJlatw!, 
"to split." In "The History of the Commoners" by John Burke, l. siatonioa;

tany or Br(ta);nr in France when William, The Norman, invaded that province 
about lO.SO A. D. This was the ancient Celtic province that Julius Caesar 
described in his Commentaries. Standing upon the crags of its coast, Caesar 
caught sight of the shining while cliffs across the channel and found a new 
territory to conriuer in Britain. From John Burke's writings one may learn 
that the Lords of Rohan were descendants of the ancient kings and princes 
of Bretagne, titles that, judged by the modern point of view, seem niore or 
less legendary. Yet in those long ago days, only the warriors were chosen Lords 
and Kings who achieved and then retained their positions of power by their 
deeds of valor and courage. 

Brittany is described as a rugged region, traversed by beautiful valleys 
and romantic glens where swift rivers flow into the sea. Even in 1580, a 
Duke of Rohan was born in Castle Blain who was a famous man of letters 
and an officer in the religious wars of that century. Blain is a city situated in 
the Vilaine Valley not far distant from the seaport of St. Nazaire. In this 
vicinity the Cloughs received their name and arms. During the reign of Wil- 
liam, The Norman, the inhabitants of this duchy obeyed the Conqueror, and 
the Lords with their clansmen joined his armies in his conquest of Britain in 
1066. Gradually the Norman henchmen were assigned areas among the Che- 
viot Hills along the northern border of England between the estates of the 
Saxon nobility where they acted as guards to enforce the regulations of William, 
The Conqueror. Without doubt among these Norman watchmen there were 
Cloughs, men who loved the highlands and who settled among them. The name 
survives near the coast of Yorkshire not far from Whitby where a town is 
called Cloughton ; and in Westmoreland County the Clough River flows into 
the Luna above Lancaster. 

Naturally the Norman warriors fell in love with the blue eyed, flaxen 
haired daughters of their Saxon neighbors and intermarriage wrought confu- 
sion with the family name of the Cloughs. Only a philologist would attempt 
to solve the puzzle of either the spelling or the pronunciation. In Old English 
the derivation of the word, clough, is from cloeftan, meaning to split, which 
introduces the letter "f" into the spelling. Also in Icelandic, klofi means a rift 
in a hillside. The Dutch kloff is a flowery glen. According to dictionaries, the 
guttural "ch" was originally an "f" in old English or Saxon and the noun 
meaning split was spelled "clufe." Middle English, which was the Saxon dia- 
lects modified by the introduction of the Norman French, spelled the name.

THE ORIGIN OF THE CLOUGH CLAN 



:^ 




In shape the masclc is a rhombus or diamond which in England is called 
a lozenge. The steel plates of mediaeval armor were lozenge shaped; the panes 
of many old casement windows were lozenges. In English Heraldry, a lozenge 
or mascle was a bearing in the form of a lozenge perforated or voided so that 
the field appeared tlirough the opening. This bearing was never charged with 
any other. 

To understand the significance of the "Mascle without a Spot," some 
explanation about the customary use of this figure is necessary. Among early 
merchants the mascle, meaning a spot, was adopted as a sort of trade mark 
to indicate an imperfection, such as a blemish in a fabric or a flaw in a jewel. 
The spelling is an erroneous form of the French made, derived from the Latin 
macula, meaning a spot. When ancient symbolism developed into Heraldry, 
first on the continent of Europe, later into English Heraldry, as a science, the 
old war cries became the mottoes of the Houses. "Sine made" explained that 
the mascle that was charged upon the escutcheon did not suggest dishonor, 
rather that the family was without disgrace and no sinister stain was imputed 
by this ancient figure. 

The coat-of-arms that is included among the illustrations in this book 
cannot be claimed as the insignia of the John Clough Branch of the family. 
From present knowledge, this is the earliest device that was assumed by a 
Clough. Either late in the twelfth or early in the thirteenth century Heraldry 
was introduced into England and Wales. After 1300 Hugh Clough of Wales 
was granted this insignia which descended to Sir Richard Clough at Llewene 
Green in Denbigh in northern Wales before the fifteenth century. 

No claim to a coat-of-arms is valid unless authorized by the Officers of 
.■\rms either in London, Edinboro, or Dublin, and the right to the armorial 
bearings has been registered in the Bureau of Heraldry in one of these cities. 
To display arms without proof of ownership is a form of forgery, since in the 
days of chivalry the coat-of-arms was the device by which a knight in armor 
was recognized and the crest was equivalent to his legal signature. 

The first famous Clough in English history was Sir Richard, The Hen. 
Because he lived during the reign of Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, 
Queen Mary, and Queen Elizabeth, he was called by this title of respect, The 
Hen, meaning The Old. He was married during the reign of Henry VIII and 
resided on his estate at Llewene Green. Five sons and a daughter were born. 
His fifth son received the title, Sir Richard, a Knight of the Holy Sepulchre,

representative of Queen Elizabeth on the continent. His manipul 
pound sterling in .\ntwerp was said to have been transacted by unf.. 
nevertheless he was popular at court because the royal cofiers 
flowing from these rates of exchange. John Burke states that, at tl; : 
of Sir Richard Clough, in 1S65 Sir Thomas Gresham erected tr.. 
change building in London. Previously, the foreign and Englisii 
transacted their sales in a narrow street, exposed to all sorts of v.j..... 
or shine. The venture proved profitable to Sir Thomas who derived an ; 
income of seven hundred pounds from rents of shops that occupied . 
above the Exchange, but were not opened until a year after Sir Richard d.ca. 

Sir Richard accumulated a considerable fortune. On his patc-nal estate 
in Denbigh he erected his mansion, Plas Clough, now occupied by his d.sccnd- 
ants. He presented other estates to each of his two daughters, on : 
Bachecrag near Denbigh. Sir Richard died at Antwerp in 1570. I. 
ants were Richard— 3; William — *; John — 5; Hugh — 6; Hu-h—

born in Liverpool, educated at Oxford, was tutor of Orviil College ..:.a ^ici.i-

Carolina for a time, but returned to England where he died in 1S61. This lir.e- 
age was copied from papers that were sent to the editor by Miss Xjil E. Swain 
of De Kalb, Illinois who received the information through Mrs. Anna E. .'ratt 
Armstrong of Shushan, New York, an aged member of the John Ciough 
Family. 

Other branches of the Cloughs possessed estates at Llwyn C ' ,.i

year before John Clough was born. These bearings were charged upon an 
escutcheon that in no manner resembled the arms of the other houses. Mr. 
Willis B. Clough of Newton Center, Massachusetts exhibited at the meeting 
of this Society at Hotel Kenmore in Boston on July 31, 1941 a copy of this 
device painted on wood which came to Mr. Clough from Nottingham, England. 
This shield was sable with a fess, humettee ermine between three leopards' 
heads argent. The crest was a demi lion rampant holding in the dexter paw 
a battle ax handled sable, headed argent. No motto appeared with this device. 
In the "General Armory of England, Scotland and Wales" by Sir Bernard 
Burke, this coat-of-arms is said to have been assumed by John of Salisbury, 
England, from Thorp Stapleton, County York. These bearings prove that the 
Cloughs were prominent landed gentry in certain counties of England and 
Wales at the time when John Clough emigrated to Massachusetts. 

This general history of the family in England and Wales furnishes a 
foundation for the opinions that well informed genealogists have expressed 
and for certain deductions from the biography of John Clough: — that the most 
promising region for exploration for the roots of our family tree is in north- 
western England and in Wales. Perchance a baptismal record may lift the 
veil of mystery, or an inscription on a tombstone in a quiet church yard may 
prove to be the missing clue. Such a possibility is an incentive for future re- 
search that may justify the name of the John Clough Genealogical Society.

The General Court granted new townships in the unoccupied wilderness, 
usually six m.iles square, to groups of Proprietors who held the grant in fee 
under whatever rights the Court voted to allow to them. 

The Proprietors held the grant "in Common" until they divided the land 
among themselves, usually sections of it at a time, and each man v/as permitted 
to sell his division to one or more customers, or he might sell all of his rights 
in the township. The Proprietors established a form of government for their 
town which usually included church government in the early years.

THE BEGINNING OF THE FAMILY 

These rroprictors, called "Commoners," willed their common ri'^hts to 
their heirs, because the undivided lands were often held for many years. Until 
the present century the shore along Salisbury Beach was owned by the heirs 
of the original Proprietors or by heirs of men to whom this property was sold. 
Rights of undivided wilderness were held by heirs of the Proprietors of Salis- 
bury until the final division was made about 1740. 

This map indicates the roads of the settlement in 1640 and the location 
of the lots of the original settlers. On the south is an e.xtensive swamp and the 
Merrimack River flows beyond it, eastward to the sea. The "Town Creek" 
was the means of exit to the river and up and down its stream passed all of 
the commerce of the settlement. The highway "to the Dock" was such a muddy 
road that the Dock was called "Mud-dock." The circular road acquired the 
name which gradually was corrupted to the present "Mudnock Road." 

Eastward, the "Road to the Neck" was the highway to the seashore, now 
called the "Beach Road." The road to "The Plains" branches farther north 
with the east branch leading to Hampton and the west branch leading to "The 
Plains." The "Road to Amesbury and the Mill" crosses the Powow River 
about three miles to the west and the City of Amesbury extends along its banks. 

The railroad of 1950 runs nearer to the lot that John Clough received 
than as illustrated on this map and the station occupies the site of his first 
home. 

Several landmarks in 1950 may be noted. The "Burying Ground" can 
easily be found where slabs of granite cover graves of prominent settlors, a 
protection from wolves lest the bodies be disinterred by these troublesome 
animals in the first years of the settlement. The lot marked "Rev. William 
Worcester" is now the site of the Methodist Church. Bronze markers indicate 
the Green and the Meeting House, Court House, and Garrison House. 

The railroad and "Road to Newburyport" were additions to an ancient 
map by Samuel C. Clough, a skilled draftsman and first genealogist of the 
John Clough Genealogical Society. 

The remaining pages of this chapter were taken from "The Tercentenary 
Program" of the Town of Salisbury, in 1938. An elaborate celebration marked 
this year and several local historians compiled these articles from the early 
records of the town.

Chapter IIT 

JOHN CLOUGH, FOUNDER 
OF SALISBURY, MASSACHUSETTS 

John Clough was an Englishman who arrived in Charlcstown, Massachu- 
setts in mid-summer of 1635 on the Ship Elizabeth. Although search has been 
authorized by The John Clough Genealogical Society, no trace of the birthplace 
or of the parentage of this ancestor has been discovered. 

The following excerpts from the "Clough Bulletin," a publication of the 
Society, explain the thorough study, by the highest authority in England, 
that was made in 1948 and 1949 in the College of Arms and in the Record 
Offices in England. 

Like most of the twenty thousand Englishmen who migrated to New 
England between the years 1620 and 1640, John Clough was a Puritan, yet 
he was even more of a dissenter than the Pilgrims or the Puritans of the Bay 
Colony; John Clough was a Presbyterian, a member of a religious sect that 
was forbidden to assemble in England by order of the king in 1610. 

John Clough sailed from his native England without publicity. He ful- 
filled the legal requirements by registering for his "certificate" or passport 
with the Master of the Rolls. If any trace of his lineage can be found, the 
record of his registration must be discovered since this is the only authentic 
evidence that will distinguish him from other men who bore the same name. 

When Mr. and Mrs. Paul Wright — see page 225 of the Clough Book — 
were visiting with her aunt Jane S. Clough at Merrimac, they discussed the 
possibility of research in England. Mr. Wright mentioned his cousin who 
makes genealogy a hobby, and Mr. Wright suggested that this relative might 
add our family to his list. 

The Board of Governors assented to this idea, and data was sent to Mrs. 
Beatrice Wright for the meager evidence we could offer to this cousin of her 
husband. After a few weeks, Mrs. Wright wrote that this cousin was in Scot-

less, as Mrs. Wright slated in her letter, there is no source in K\v 
of higher authority than the College of Arms, and if there i . :n 

our John Clough, it will be there. 

The College of Arms was established by King Edward VII :. ,:;■- 

leenth century to preserve the records and pedigrees of those famili, 
awarded coats-of-arnis by the king or the church. Later this bureau. . 
be designated in this country, accumulated the most comp'. j 
library of records in England and continues these duties to the i.u : .:... k. ._ . 

The College of Arms consists of an Earl at its head, and three king.s in 
England, each king being responsible for a section of England. The Clarcnceu.x 
King, named for the son of King Edward VII, presides over southern England,

The members of the Board of Governors were consulted by lei.er. A unan- 
imous consent v/as returned that instructed your president to accept ilic offer 
of Sir Arthur. Accordingly, a letter with data enclosed was airniailed to Sir 
Arthur in February. Soon a reply arrived which stated: 

"Thanks for your letter of February 13th. I should be delighted to make 
some research on behalf of your Society with regard to the lineage of your 
ancestor, John Clough. I must point out however that I cannot, for obvious 
reasons, guarantee any defmite results, and can only add that I will do my 
best in the matter. I would suggest, in the first instance, my mak!;-...; ;. search 
in the records and Collections of the College as to any pedigree or :. v.^/.c of a 
pedigree entered here, with a casual consideration of any pedigrees of the name 
I discover, and my next step would naturally depend on v/hat was discovered. 
In order to pay the out of pockei expenses I would like you to send me say 
100 dollars on account and I would ask you for a similar amount i:om time 
to time when the money is exhausted, if you wish to proceed further. It would 
possibly help me if you could send me a photostat copy of John dough's Will, 
and, if there are any, copies of a tombstone to his mem.ory or entry in a burial 
register, or any other indication as to his age at death and probable year of 
birth. I therefore await your reply." 

A draft was sent to Sir Arthur and his secretary acknowled,';ed its safe 
arrival in England. We are awaiting news of any discoveries in England.

JOHN CLOUGH, FOUNDER 

The following letter was received in 1949. 

SIR ARTHUR COCHRANE 

Clarenceux King of Arms 

College of Arms 

Queen Victoria Street, 

London, E.C.4: 

"Dear Mrs. Speare, 

"I have now completed the search in the records and Collections of the 
College, and I find the following pedigrees :- 

"1612. Pedigree recorded by Edmond Cloughe of Thorpe Staplcton co. 
York back to his grandfather John Cloughe. Edmond at that date (1612) had 
only a daughter in this pedigree, Anne then living aged 4 years. 

"1623. Pedigree recorded by Richard Clough of Minsterley co. Salop 
going back five generations to William Clough of Minsterley. There is no 
John Clough in this pedigree that would fit. 

"1633. Pedigree of William Clough of London descended from Edmond 
Clough of Thorpe Stapleton. He had a brother John Clough of Bury St. 
Edmunds then living. 

"1668. Pedigree of Christopher Clough of Minderstowne co. Salop then 
aged 68 back to father Robert Clough of Minsterly. 

"1668. Pedigree of Richard Clough of Minsterley who was descended 
from the 1623 entry. 

"You will see from the above that no family of the name living at Salis- 
bury has come to light and I do not consider that it would be policy at the 
moment to make any further searches in regard to the above families. 

"I have also made some cursory searches in the district of Salisbury and 
I do not find at the moment any mention of the name in early times. 

"Naturally I have not made a complete search, but what I have done 
seems to indicate a more or less general search in early records around the 
country between 1600 and 1650, commencing with the Public Record Office, 
London, for any particulars regarding the sailing of John Cluffe in 1635. 

"I shall be pleased to continue these searches on receiving your instruc- 
tions and a further cheque on account. 

Yours sincerely, 

Arthur Cochrane 
Clarenceu.x King of Arms." 

The Board of Governors of the John Clough Genealogical Society, at its 
meeting in Plymouth, New Hampshire on August 6, 1949, voted to discontinue 
this research.

Because William Whiiridge was listed in the public Records .d 

at the same time as John Clough, and the fact that he was a ca. 
given several authors (for example, ''The New England Geneabgi^ 
ary" by Savage) the idea that John Clough was an apprentice t*:- ,.;;:ar.-. 
Whitridge, and came under his supervision. Also in the records of iJo. . is 
a confusing statement in the: 

"Records of the Governor and Company of the Massachusetts Bay 
in Xew England, Vol. 1. 162S-1641. Ed. N'. B. Shurtleif, M. D., 
Boston, 1S33. p. 255. 163S-9. 13 March. 

Jo!;n Cluffe, vpon his petition, was granted a lott, w'° 
his masters allov;ance & consent, hawing served 4 yearcs al- 
ready." 

There is no proof that John Clough of Salisbury was an inbao., 
Boston in 1641, neither is there any reason to claim that he was an appr. 

The most important fact to be considered is that William V/hi.rx'^c went 
to Ipsv/ich after he landed from the ship, and also William Eoldrecl lived ai 
first in Ipswich. The probability that John Clough went to Ipswich v.-ith then: 
is reasonable, especially when other factors are taken into consideration. These 
records are extremely important, because they establish the identity of John 
Clough of Salisbury, Massachusetts. 

It would be an important fact, could it be ascertained, ho-.7 Jonn Clough 
learned about the Plantation at Salisbury. Either he already know of the plans

fur a new .settlement before he left Knghmd, or he gained the information in 
the place where he stayed between the day he landed in Charlcstown in 16.55, 
and 1639. 

It has been noted in Chapter II that five or more of the original I'ro- 
prietors of Salisbury, Massachusetts, were from Wills County in England ;iiid 
several, including the wealthy Christopher Batt and the first minister, Rev. 
William Worcester, were from the shire town of Wilts County, Salisiniry, 
England. If the privileges that were immediately granted to John Clough at 
Salisbury in 1639, namely, immediate church membership and admitted a 
Freeman in 1640, are noted carefully, there is every indication that the original 
Proprietors were acquainted with him intimately. 

Secondly, several of the settlers of Ipswich moved to Salisbury and were 
admitted Proprietors by the original twelve men: Edward French, Henry 
Brown, George Carr, Thomas Carter, Thomas Rowell, and William Holdred 
"who came with John Clough" to New England. Edward French was one of 
the early Prudential Men, (selectmen of today). Henry Brown was the church 
deacon, and George Carr was one of the prominent business men of the settle- 
ment. It is credible that John Clough lived at Ipswich from 163j to 1639 and 
moved with other men of Ipswich to Salisbury. 

Another reason for supposing that John Clough was not a stranger to the 
original Proprietors from Salisbury, England, is that John was a Presbyterian, 
a sect that was forbidden in 1610 by King James to hold a meeting for public 
worship. Also, Rev. William Worcester was of the same faith and the church 
at Salisbury was organized according to the government of that denomination, 
as proved by Public Records in Boston. 

In the Genealogy of The Merrill Family by Samuel Merrill, Cambridge, 
Mass., 1917-1928, the statement is found that the organization of the church 
for Salisbury, Massachusetts, was originally founded in Salisbury, England, 
before the grant was established by the General Court. This is evidence that 
plans were in process some time before 1638, and especially noteworthy is the 
fact that several members of the family of Governor Dudley, highest official 
of the Bay Colony, were among the original twelve Proprietors who were evi- 
dently planning a speculation in land for financial investment. Rev. William 
Worcester was engaged as pastor of the church while he was yet living in Salis- 
bury, England. He presented a bell to the town which he shipped at least a 
year before he arrived at the settlement.

However, as stated above, he was immediately admitted to the chu.i-

fluential' men of the Commonwealth of the Bay Colony. This establishes the 
status of John Clough at the very beginning of the settlement, and indicates 
that he was well known to the leaders in this new Plantation.

To become a freeman it was required tiiat the individual be a respectable member of some 
Church. Persons were made freeman by the "General Court" and by tae quarterly courts

JOHN CLOUGH, FOUNDER 

John Clough's first lot in Salisbury was near the place where the railroad 
station is now (1950) located, and William Holdred's was located on the 
second lot to the west of him. There he erected his home and brought his wife, 
Jane . Unfortunately no trace of the maiden name of Jane has been dis- 
covered. In several references to John Clough and Jane the statement is found 
that both came to New England on the ship Elizabeth. Jane's name does not 
appear on the list of passengers, neither is a Jane Clough on the lists of emi- 
grants, at the Public Record Office in London, who sailed on the Elizabeth or 
any other ship. 

The names Jane and Joan were common among the young women of the 
Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1635. Probably no trace of the maiden name of 
our maternal ancestor can be discovered. Although the statement is made in a 
few books that John and Jane were married in England, this seems improbable, 
unless Jane followed John after 1635. Certainly no record of a Jane Clough 
has been read, although diligent search has been pursued at the Massachusetts 
Genealogical Library in Boston, Mass.

Six of the children and probably the seventh were born in the original 
settlement in the home on the lot where the railroad station stands (in 1950). 
Both the boys and tlie girls attended the school that was taught in the begin- 
ning by the minister and afterward by Thomas Bradbury. 

Between 1656 and 1660, John Clough moved to Salisbury Plains, a dis- 
tance of about two miles northwestward into the wilderness. There he pur- 
chased extensive tracts of land, from time to time, and erected his homestead. 
His Rights as a Commoner in the divisions of "upland" probably permitted 
him to receive shares of land that is now a part of Kingston, N. H. which his 
grandchildren occupied in the early years of the eighteenth century. Also, John 
Clough purchased Proprietor's Rights in Amesbury and Haverhill, Mass. which

Jane Clough died on January 11, 1679, and only her given name and her 
seven children are her memorial. She seems a woman of mystery, without 
a trace of her ancestry. Strangely, none of her immediate descendants chris- 
tened a daughter for this maternal grandmother. Her burial place is unknown. 

Seven years after the death of Jane, when all of his children were married 
and living in homes of their own, John Clough married a widow, Martha 
Blaisdell Cilley, the daughter of the Taverner, Ralph Blaisdell. On the 16th 
of March, 1691, John Clough sold real estate to Onessiphrus Page and Martha 
signed off her dower rights to this property. A copy of the deed of sale is 
preserved in the Probate Court House at Salem, Mass. and reads as follows: 

(Note: this document was written with out punctuation. Marks have been added by 
the editor.)

. The widow, Marlha Blaisdell Cilley Clough, inherited propcrtj' froiv. her 
previous marriage and evidently did not desire to claim her dov.i.- rights to 
the landed estate. However, from a later bill of sale between Onesir-hrus Page 
and John— 2 Clough in 1795 which listed a part of the estate .-.:' John— 1 
Clough that was included in the bill of 1691, it seems reasonable .o conclude 
that 'Mv. Page did not fulfill his part of the trade between Ivlarch i ' 1 ■'•''■\ r'S.d 
July, 1691 when John — 1 Clough drew his will and the sak w;..; 
summated. It may be noted that Onessiphrus Page married '.he v. . 
Sarah— 2 Clough, Ruth Merrill. 

The author of this genealogy was informed at the Probate Cot..', 
in Saiem.-Mass. that several weeks would be required to trace, I: 

the exact locations of the lands that were acquired by John— 1 ,-. Xo 

dennile site can be proved for his original home on Salisbury Pi;.:.- 

The site of the schoolhouse of 1951 was the six acres -.ha. -- 

Clough received at the time of his marriage in 1679. On the op. ■ ^■ 

the highway toward Amesbury is a large house which stands up^ 
acres that John— 1 presented to his eldest son, John, when he m;. 
Page in 1674. The deed of this property is on record at Sak:m,

On the opposite side of

at Salem, ^Mass., Book 
D5S, page 207 and before 
ans, was the owner. In 



a historical paper that John Q. Evans wrote in 1897, he stated that this was 
"the old Clough place." 

Mr. Ernest M. Thayer, owner in 1950, told the author that he received the 
information from a neighbor who had lived all of his life in this vicinity, that 
the house is ISO years old. The original house burned and the present struc- 
ture was moved a century ago from the east to this site. 

From comparisons of the bill of sale to Onessiphrus Page with statements 
in the genealogies of the Gill and Merrill Families, the conclusion is that the 
original home on the Plains was in the vicinity of Hunt's Corner, so called in 
1950, where John Clough acquired his first lots on Salisbury Plains. 

When the second division of land was allotted to the Commoners, John 
Clough drew lot number one on the north side of Batt's Hill, an eminence near 
Hunt's Corner. Next he purchased lot number thirty-four for two pounds from 
the 100 acres of Hall's Farm when Mr. Hall sold his land to the town. Andrew 
Greeley defaulted in payment for another lot which John Clough purchased. 
With John Gill, he purchased 90 acres for 88 pounds, and gave to Mr. Gill a 
right of way across this area. 

Although no records are found of his disposal of his rights of commonage 
in the undivided lands belonging to the Proprietors, since his grandsons who 
were sons of his eldest son, John, occupied these rights in later years, no doubt 
these were given to John — 2 Clough. 

John Clough proved that he understood English law and the custom of 
promogeniture. His eldest son and eldest grandson were mentioned in his will. 
Before his death, John Clough acquired hundreds of acres of land in Salisbury, 
Amesbury, and Haverhill which he distributed either by gift during his life 
or by will to his children and grandchildren. 

In July, 1691, John Clough made his last will, which was probated on 
November 3, 1691. The date of his death is not recorded. Probably both John 
and Jane are buried in the Clough lot at the Salisbury Plains Cemetery. No 
marker designates the spot, but the location of the grave of the eldest son, 
John, would indicate that the vacant space at the northeastern corner of the 
lot should contain the dust of these ancestors, if the old custom prevailed in 
1691 of placing the grave of the eldest son next to his parents. 

The West Parish established the cemetery for a town burial place in 1705 
or 1707. The headstone of John Clough, Jr. is the oldest dated marker in the 
cemetery, 1718, but many field stones are scattered in the Clough lot and

spoke with deep solemnity of the contribution made by our ancestors as Amer- 
ican pioneers and our responsibility to carry on their work. After a prayer 
and placing of llowers on the graves, we drove a mile beyond the cemetery to 
Rocky Hill meetinghouse where we held a service in this historic church which 
some of our early ancestors attended."

Chapter IV 
THE SECOND GENERATION 

2— ELIZABETH (John) Born at Salisbury, Mass. on December 16, 

1642. 

The eldest child of John and Jane Clough was born in the home on the 
Beach Road that leads to Amesbury, near the Garrison House. John Clough 
believed in education for his daughters as well as his sons, and Elizabeth 
attended the village school that was, probably, taught by the minister. Rev. 
William Worcester. During the year 1659 or 1660, Elizabeth married William 
Home of Dover, N. H. Their first child was born in Salisbury and evidently 
John Clough desired to persuade William and Elizabeth to remain near his 
home. Old Norfolk County deeds record (Vol. 2, page S3) "John Clough of 
Salisbury, Carpenter, for 700 pounds sells William Home of Dover, husband- 
man, 53 acres about my house in Salisbury, Nov. 7, 1665." In Vol. 2, page 68, 
"William Home of Dover being unable to pay the 700 pounds relinquishes 
his rights to John Clough, May 19, 1666." These records are at the Probate 
Court House in Salem, Mass. This land was on Salisbury Plains. Elizabeth 
and William established their home in Dover, New Hampshire, the first mem- 
ber of the Clough Family in that Colony, "probably on Home Hill, now Si.xth 
Street, near Whitcher's or Tolend Falls." William Home had already pur- 
chased 240 acres of land in that location from Elder Edward Starbuck. on 
20 Sept., 1661, and there made his home. (Quoted from "John Hayes of Dover, 
N. H." by Katherine F. Richmond, Tyngsboro, Mass., 1936.) 

Elizabeth was a woman of some prominence in early Dover. A quotation 
from the Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire (1939, page 
350) states: "She, Widow Elizabeth, had the distinction of being the only 
woman to sign her own name, among many signers, of a petition to IVIassachu- 
setts on Feb. 20, 1689/90 to set up a temporary government. All other women 
made their mark." 

On the 28th of June, 1689, William Home was killed by the Indians 
during the raid upon Dover when the Waldron Garrison House and several 



41 



Tin; SECOXD GKXEKA'nON 

otlicr j^anisons wore burned and many inhabitants were massacrci. 
bcr of prisoners were taken cither to Maine or to Canada. 

Probably Klizabctii Cloiish Home was killed by India: . 
30, 1707. In the Journ;'.l of Rev. jolm Pike is recorded: "G. 
was taken by the Indians near the lower corner of Capt. Gcr. 
traveled the Road same Day several Troops passed the Ro:. 
alter she was taken." This quotation is accepted by Kathc:i._ . 
her Genealogy of the Ilayes Family.

THE SECOND GENERATION 

ye sone of Sarah Merrill shall be considered & allowed some prehemenency in 
ye aboves & lands above ye rest of ye sd Sarah's children." 

Daniel Merrill willed to his namesake and oldest son, Daniel, his home- 
stead in Newbury. The youngest son, Moses, lived opposite the Salisbury 
Plains cemetery and his father willed the homestead in Salisbury to him. It 
is interesting to note that John Clough gave preference to Sarah's son, John, 
his namesake, in his instructions. 

Daniel Merrill began to buy land in Salisbury in 1682. He acquired two 
tracts of the Barbary Meadows, six acres in the Higglcde Pigglcde Lotts, two. 
tracts in Goodale Swamp Division, and upland at the Great Plain and Mun- 
day's Hill. Mr. John Q. Evans, a resident of Salisbury Plains, stated in a 
paper, "The Plains of 200 Years Ago," that was read at a meeting of the 
Town Improvement Society held at Batts Hill, Salisbury on June 17, 1897: 
"Daniel Merrill married Sarah, the daughter of John Clough, and moved to 
the Plains. I have not as yet ascertained in what way or when he secured the 
land so long in the Merrill name as a homestead. However, about 1695, he, 
then called Sargeant Merrill, owned land next east of Thomas Clough's." Mr. 
Evans also stated: "Onessiphorus Page in 1699 bought of John Clough — 2 
his home of forty acres bounded west by land sometime Gill's, east by Thomas 
Clough's and a common way."

10, 16S0 he married Hannah Gile who was born at Haverhill, Mass. on Feb. 
12, or 25, 1655; the daughter of Samuel and Judith (Davis) Gile who re- 
sided first at Newbury, then removed to Haverhill, Mass. in 1640-42. At the 
time of his marriage, John Clough gave to Thomas six acres of land, now 
the site of the schoolhouse on Salisbury Plains (1950). This land adjoined 
the twelve acres that John Clough gave to his eldest son, John, at the time 
of his marriage. 

Thomas subscribed to the Oath of Fidelity and Allegiance in 1677. He 
joined the town inilitia for defense against the Indians. 

Hannah, the mother of the two eldest sons, died on Jan. 22, 1684. For 
his second wife, Thomas married Ruth Connor, the daughter of Cornelius and 
Sarah Connor. Cornelius was a soldier and one of the original settlers of 
Salisbury. Ruth was born on May 16, 1670 at Salisbury, Mass. 

When the second church of Salisbury was organized in the West Parish, 
Thomas was one of the original twelve members and Ruth was admitted to 
nu-nihorship on July 27, 171S. Thomas' name appears on the list of "Yooman" 
nKMuim; in l'".ii;:;lish Law. a frtvlioldor, one who was ([iialiried lo serve on jiuies 
and lo vole in (own luivliims ii\ 17.K). Koili Thomas and Riilh signed petitions

Ruth died on Aug. 5, 1727 and Thomas died before 1749. No copy of 
his will has been found upon record, but an inventory of his estate is pre- 
served at the Probate Court Building in Salem, Mass. (Record No. 5677)

S— SAMUEL (John) Born Feb. 20, 1 656/7. Perhaps lac c 
John and Jane to be born on Salisbury Plains. Samuel was inarrio 
1679, to Elizabeth Brown, daughter of William and Elizabeth 
Brown of Amesbury, Mass. William Brown came to Salisbury ab 

Samuel lived in Amesbury on "Clough Hill," in more recent 
■'The Buttonwoods" according to a statement by INIilon O. Cluff, 
This name is derived from the knobs, like buttons, that prciruoc .io:;-. ;. 
bark of the Sycamore tree that grows in New England, hence the n:.nie, 'liv. 
ton wood. 

Samuel w.is a blacksmith, proved by his v/ill when he g: vc li:s looks 
his son, Kbcnczer. The probable location of the home of Samuel m,.y he sci 
beside a cross-road that stretches betv.-ccn the present route from .'■.:.i.i'.-h;:i 
to Salisbury and a road along the bank of the Alerrimack River. '.'..'. cr-.. 
road climbs sleep hills* to a plateau, known to this day as The L 
where a race track was located in fornicr years. 

From an historical article that is preserved in the Public fJb.'- 
rimac, Mass. the statement was copied that "The Buttonwoods" 
as "Indian Ground" and it is recorded that an Indian village o;. 
this clearing before Samuel built his home there. Doubtless the '......... . ^: 

appeared after the epidemic of the 1610 period. 

Samuel was a ''Snowshoe Man" in 1708, meaning a mer.ib^. 
of pioneers that v/as organized to protect the settlements at a momci.Ls :-...i:t 
from Indian raids. 

Samuel died at the age of S2 and in his will he gave his l-.-jmc-'..-.^;! :.■• '". 
youngest son, David, who continued to live in Amesbury and was ; 
man. The location of the rights of commonage that John Cloii^^h ;a..\;.... . .

Chapter V 
THE THIRD GENERATION 

John and Jane Clough were the grandparents of 57 offspring; 31 boys 
and 26 girls. The three sons, John, Thomas, and Samuel, begot 35 children; 
20 boys and 15 girls. Fifteen of these sons lived to manhood and established 
families, and ten of the dau;;hters married men who lived in Salisbury. Two 
sons of John, Jr. occupied the homesteads in Salisbury, but Joseph, Benoni, 
Cornelius, Caleb and Moses settled in Kingston and Jonathan went to Con- 
necticut. Two sons of Thomas remained in Salisbury, but Zacheus, Isaac, and 
Jethro settled in Poplin or Salem, New Hampshire. The sons of Samuel re- 
mained in Amesbury. Thus the pattern began to spread northward and one 
line to the south in this third generation. 

The children of the daughters of John and Jane scattered more widely. 
The grandchildren of Elizabeth lived in Dover, N. H.; Sarah's were in New- 
bury, Mass. and IMartha's were in Haverhill, Mass. 

9— BENONI (John, John) Born May 23, 1675 at Salisbury, Mass. 
Benoni was the first grandchild of John and Jane, although the eldest son of 
their daughter, Martha — 2, John Page, Jr., was born on September 27, 1675, 
four months later than Benoni. 

Land in Salisbury was bequeathed to Benoni in the will of John Clough 
presumably with the expectation of his grandfather that this eldest grandson 
would perpetuate the Clough Family on the original homestead. This bequest 
was called Hall's Farm which John Clough purchased, in part, in 1657 when 
Samuel Hall sold his grants to the town of Salisbury and soon returned to 
England. (Vol. 6, page 220, N.H.S.P.) 

Benoni married Hannah Merrill who was born in Kensington, N. H. on 
July 12, 1672, probably the daughter of Nathaniel Merrill — 2 of Newbury, 
Mass. (Hoyt, Vol. 1, page 244) Their marriage date is not recorded, but their 
oldest child was born on Sept. 25, 1694 when Benoni was nineteen years of age. 
In 1710, the name of Benoni is on the list of soldiers of Salisbury, a band of

chased in Salisbury in 1639, from Massachusetts, the boundary 11;. 
that Province, the Bay Colony, and the Province of New Hampshiri 
in 1657. Beginning on the cast at the mouth of the Hampton River .. 
Rock" it extended toward the west, inland to Angle Pond in the pr 
of Hampstead, N. H. There it turned south to the present line on i'. 
the Jlerrimack River at "Holt's Rock" with the river for the cntir. 
line. The present towns of Salisbury, Amcsbury and Mcrrimac w. 
Massachusetts, and in Xew Plampshire the grant included South 
and Xewton together with two-thirds of Scabrook, Plaistow, Xi:. 
Hampsiead and all supposed to belong to the "Commoners" of S;.. ...,,.,_. ... 
Massachiisctis. 

Disputes about land cLiims became frequent. Several divisii 
"Commonages" were granted to the "commoners" and the heirs «..' 
received "rights" among them. Thus, live sons of John — 2: Jos. .. 
Caleb, Moses and Bcnoni moved into Kingston and beyond Ic- 
land "rights." The risk of living there was great, because bo;h \>w.vi;s .;,..j 
Indians infested this wilderness region. The town of Kingston was i.ir'-.:rihct'. 
in 1694, but the Indians drove the settlers away from their iiomes ..: ':■.■ .-\ 

twice. Benoni joined the militia soon after his arrival in the town. L.- 

in ancient deeds would be required to trace the lots that these Clor,.,i..i ...^.,- 
pied. 

The Kingston nrst church was organized in 1725 and Benoni and h:.^ 
son, Ichabod, were early members and the children of Ichabod were b,".;v.;/.i.-,l 



there. (K.F.C.R.) Hannah died on February 24, 1742 and Benoni iv.:\-'.\\\l

was admitted to the Salisbury first church on May 21, 1710. Later than 1695 
she married IMoses Merrill of Salisbury. Their children were Apphia, Sarah, 
Moses and Mary. These four were baptized on May 28, 1710. There were 
six other children who were born between 1711 and 1723. Their home was 
near the Salisbury Plains Cemetery which was established by the town in 1705 
or perhaps earlier. Moses Merrill's will was written in 1756. 

11— JOHN (John, John) Born Juhe 30, 1678 at Salisbury, Mass. On 
March 5, 1701 he married Elizabeth Long, the daughter of Richard and Ann 
(French) Long. Her father was killed by Indians in Amcsbury on his way to 
Haverhill on Sept. 4, 1694. He left a considerable estate to his children. 

John resided in Salisbury and joined the first church on Sept. 23, 1705. 
After the second church was organized in the West Parish they became mem- 
bers on Sept. 6, 1719. This John was called a "Planter" meaning that he cul- 
tivated the soil of the Clough Farm, probably land that he inherited from his 
father on Salisbury Plains. A provision in his mother's will indicates that he 
was responsible for the administration of his father's estate, and her legacy 
to him was contingent upon his compliance with his father's instructions. 

The following record of conveyance in the Probate Court at Salem, Mass. 
(Vol. 30, Page 64) proves the inheritance of Elizabeth in her father's estate: 

"John Clough to Henry True

THE THIRD GENERATION 

These one hundred twenty acres were near the site of the present Rocky 
Hill McetinRhouse and the mills for grist and sawing in which the Cloughs 
owned rights were on the Powow River, now included in Amesbury, Mass. 

On Jan. l.S, 1714, Cornelius married Joanna Sanimrn, born Dec. 1, 1602, 
the dau-hter of Benjamin and Sarah Saniiorn of Hampton Kails, N. H. After 
the birth of two sons, Joanna died in 1717. Oldest legible inscription on a 
gravestone reads, Joanna Clou^h wife of Cornelius Clough d. 1717. 

On August 8, 1718, Cornelius married Anne Evans, born Nov. 5, 1687 at 
Salisbury, the daughter of Thoma.s and Hannah (Hrown) Evans, who was a 
captain of mililia in Greenland in 1716. Cornelius and Anne moved to King- 
ston before 1725. (N. H. Gen. Reg. Vol. 2, Page 43) He was one of the signers 
of a petition in 1738 at Kingston to the General Court of New Hamp.shire for 
a Grant of Land "a spot between Winnepesoekke (Winnipesauke) and Pemis- 
sewassctt (Pemigewasset) River." (N.H.S.P. Vol. IX, Page 334) 

The name of Cornelius was upon the list of voters in Kingston in 1727. 
Both he and Anne were admitted to the Kingston first church on DecLMnbcr 
3, 1727. He was called "Sargeant" in the colonial militia. Anne was living m 
1736. A disease, then called "Kanker Quinsy," a virulent epidemic, swept 
through Kingston and several of the children of Cornelius and Anne were 
victims.

Caleb was on ihc list of Capt. Eaton's Company of Salisbiir_ 
to the relief oi Exeter, N. H. in 1710. 

On Dec. 27, 1722, Caleb married Lydia Perkins of Salisbur;. . ... 
in Kingston and Caleb was a signer on the petition to the Cou. 
Hampshire to separate East Kingston from Kingston for anolhc 
173S. In 1741, Caleb v.-ith others asked to be annexed to Kcnsin;j;i , .

Joseph was a cordwainer, or leather worker, a shoemaker. On Augu.^i 11, . . 
he married ^lafy Jehness. Possibly Joseph was the first of the five brothers 
who moved to Kingston, for he went there as' early as 1711. He was admitted 
to the first church in Kingston before 1725. Mary v/as admitted on ^j;.:-t!; 2D, 
1726. Joseph's will was dated Oct. 12, 1732. Maty died on Ociobcr '.2, .: -,2 

and Joseph died on the 13th. "A young infant, orphan of JoscnV. C 

died." (K.C.R.) This was the time of the epidemic of "Kanker Quinsy"' „..d 
may have been the cause of these three deaths. 

The estate was divided in January, 1736 and was administe;- j 

eldest son, Ezra. The inventory valued the property at 709 pounds, 5 

and included three Commoners Rights, valued at 15 pounds. Ezra ■ 

two shares and the other living children one share each. A study of li'.c .-nard- 
ianship of the younger children proves that the Clough Family fos.e.v-d their 
relatives. \Vm. Buswell was a trusted friend; Andrew Webster was the husband 
of Mercy (74) who took the young sister, Tabitha {,S>Z).

Perhaps this grandson of John Clough lived a more exciting career than his 
seven brothers. Indians were increasingly hostile in 1710, and Jonathan beg.in 
his military service when with his brothers he became a member of Capt. 
Eaton's Company and marched to Exeter to repel these dangerous foes. The 
previous year, 1709, he married Hannah Gile on December 31. She was the 
daughter of Ephraim and Martha (Bradley) Gile of Haverhill, Mass. Their 
first home was in Salisbury and both became members of the first church in 
1715. 

Ephraim Gile and Jonathan were interested in a new township called 
Cheshire, now Chester, N. H. In March, 1720, surveyors laid out the lots and

joined the Giles in this migration in 1722. 

Jonathan purchased 100 acres from Henry and Ebcnezcr G. 
eighth on the list of Proprietors of this new township, fon.ier. 
Killingly in the northeast corner of ihe Province of Connecticut. 
reality a family enterprise, for Henry Green had married Han;

Both Jonathan and Hannah were members of li.e first church. ..-. i.-.or.-.p-

children v.'ere born, the last a son named John, on the day that his modicr 
died, Nov. 11, 1727, only five years after the move from Salisbury. On Feb. 
24, 172S, Jonathan married JNIary Gile, a cousin of Plannah, and three more 
children v/ere added to the family in the next three years. Jor.uihan's descend- 
ants scattered into Massachusetts and New York and gradually into the 
western states, to become distinguished citizens in many localities. 

From 173S to 1742, Jonathan was a deputy in the Colornal .^s^c;:•.■,;y at 
Hartford and served several more terms as representative of his tc/..;.. lie was 
appointed deacon in 1742, a position that he held in the church t/:e vi'.-.iaindcr 
of his life. His career as a soldier in Salisbury trained him to join the ex:)c;lii;on 
to Cape Breton, Canada; also he was a lieutenant with the Connecticut nr.ilitia 
that sailed to capture Louisburg, Nova Scotia in 1745. 

Jonathan died at the age of 95 years on June 2, 17S2 at Lolcnertown, 
Mass. He is buried at Killingly, Conn., now called Mechanicsville, in the West 
Thompson Cemetery, and the inscription on his headstone reads: 
"Deacon Jonathan Clough, D. June 2, 17S2. Ae. 95 yrs." 

Mary Gile Clough, the second wife, died on March 28, 1787 at the age

THE THIRD GENERATION 

No records have been found of the children of this second marriage. They 
were born at the lime of the throat epidemic and may not have survived. 

19— .'\.\RON (John, John) Horn Dec. 16, 1695 at Salisbury, Mass. On 
Jan. 23, 1721 he married .Abigail Moulton at Hampton, N. H., the great- 
granddaughter of John Moulton, famous founder of Hampton. She was also 
a descendant of Edward Hilton, first settler of Dover, N. H. She was the 
mother of eight children. Aaron and Abigail and three children were baptized 
at the Salisbury church on Nov. 26, 1727. She died on Jan. 26, 1743 and her 
grave in the Salisbury Plains cemetery is marked by a small stone bearing 
the inscription, "Mrs. Abigail Clough ye wife of Mr. Aaron Clough died Jan. 
26, 1743 age 46." A sharply pointed stone, rudely inscribed is beside Abigail's 
and reads, "Here lies buried ye body of Mr. Aaron Clough. He died Jan. ye 
20th 1781 in ye 86 years of his age & his second wile Rcbekah in ye same 
grave in her 72nd year. She died on Jan. 22, 1781. The inscriptions for both 
John — 2 and Aaron — 3 bear the title, "Mr." which in 1781 was regarded as 
an honor. Aaron was admitted to the Salisbury 2nd church in the West Parish 
on Jan. 4,1756. In his mother's will he was mentioned with his brother, Moses, 
as her joint executors. Probate records in Salem, Mass. date his will on Feb. 
24, 1781 for probate. 

Excerpts from a clipping that was written for 

"THE VILLAGER" of Amesbury, Mass. 

Aug. S, 187S 

"Old roads that encircle the outskirts of the town (Salisbury) in this region were 
among the first laid out under authority of the town as outlets into New Hampshire and 
were locally noted for several fine farms, as well as generous hospitality of their owners. 
That old farm house on the left is more than a hundred years old. Nowhere within a 
circle of fifteen miles could be found a better farm or more stylish farm mansion, the scene 
of many a gay, stylish party. 

"Mr. Clough, its owner, was a gentleman, honored and respected by his townsmen, 
having a large circle of friends among wealthy classes of Ncwburyport. 

"Fifteen cows, one hundred sheep, a dozen work o.xen, and span of horses was con- 
sidered a large stock for a farmer in those days and the possessor was looked upon as a 
prince among farmers, especially if he owned a portion of a vessel besides." 

The reference to owning a "share in a vessel" is significant. John — 1 Clough petitioned 
the General Court of Massachusetts with a request that "Liberty be granted to John 
Clough, Left. Pike & Henry True to transport so many plank as will serve for the deck 
of a vessel building in Boston," an indication that the first John engaged in the coasting 
trade for a time. While no mention of such ownership is in his will, neither are many of 
his other possessions, and in all probability he disposed of them to his sons before his 
death. Certainly the ability to purchase large tracts of land on Salisbury Plains, and rights

An Ebenezer Clough is found in the history of the town of York in 1721 in 
the company of Capt. Harmon as a sentinel. 

Later an Ebenezer is at North Yarmouth, Maine. Since no oiher C^oug'ns 
were in this vicinity, the possibility exists that this man settled on Royall

THE THIRD GE.\KR.VriO\ 

On pages 99-101 of "Ancient Korlh Yarmouth, Maine, 16.^6-19.^6" by 
William H. Rowe we read : "Spring 1748 Indians and French infesting town. 
21 May, Abraham Pettcngill and Ebenczer Clough who had farms on the 
west bank of Royall River near Mitchell Garrison were taken. July 2, 1748 
news of Treaty of Aix-la-Chapclle reached the town. Each nation should 
surrender to the other, without ransom, all prisoners in their hands. 6 Oct. 
the schooner BRITTANIA arrived in Boston Harbor from Canada and on 
board among the other prisoners were Ebenezer Clough and Abraham Pctten- 
gill." Ebenezer married Anna Webber. (Greeley Genealogy page 140) Mr. 
Rowe does not know where Clough came from.

Below is a story of the Revolution that may be the son of Ebenezer of 
North Yarmouth who had settled in Falmouth, a nearby township. 

In 1775, at Fort No. 2 in Cambridge, Ma.ss. was the 31st Regiment of 
Foot of Col. Edmund Phinney, the first one raised in Cumberland County, 
Maine. 

Among those enlisting in Capt. David Bradish's Co. on May 12, 1775, 
were John and Ebenezer Clough, both of Falmouth. They were in and about 
town until July guarding the exposed towns on their own seacoast. 

While arrangements were being made for the formation of the regiment 
the Battle of Bunker Hill was fought. On July 8, 1775 at 11,30 A. ^L they 
started from Falmouth Neck and arrived at Cambridge Common on the 14th 
of July at 5 P. M., according to the detailed journal of one of the soldiers. 

The average march was twenty miles a day, with a pay allowance of a 
penny a mile. During their entire service they saw no great nor decisive 
battles, but were proud of the time when they guarded the headquarters of

27— ISAAC (Thomas, John) Born Jan. 24, 1693-4 at Salisbury, Mass. 
He married Sarah Swain (Swayne or Swaine) of Hampton, N. H., Jan. 25, 
1720; marriage intentions were filed at Salisbury, Mass., Oct. 13, 1719. She 
was born in Hampton in 1689, daughter of William and Mary (Web.ster) 
Swain. Isaac died at Salem, N. H. Aug. 22, 1765 and his wife died Dec. 22, 
1768, aged 79 years and both are buried at the old burying ground at Salem, 
N. H. near the Town House formerly the ancient meeting house, with stones 
to their memory still to be seen. 

Their first home was in Salisbury where his father gave him land in 
1723 and their first four children were born. Their first church affiliation was 
at the Salisbury Church on Oct. 3, 1725. A new home was established when 
his father Thomas in 1728 deeded to Isaac for natural affection, land "in the 
Fourth Division, so-called, formerly in the township of Haverhill, now 
Methuen, made out of the westerly end of said Haverhill **** by virtue of 
the gift and grant of my father-in-law, Mr. Samuel Gile, late of said Haver- 
hill made to me in his last will and testament bearing the date of February 
16, 1683 of one half of his Fourth Division lands ** e.xcepting 40 acres 
which I reserve for my son, Jethro, where it may be least prejudicial to my 
said son, Isaac." These divisions were sections of the wilderness in a township 
which were allotted to settlers by the proprietors from time to time and this 
was the fourth set off from Haverhill. This land comprised all the land around

may have been built by 1720. The Clotighs from Salisbury ... 
from Xewbury were among the earliest settlers and their dcscon( 
residents of the town. 

Since there is no mention of any buildings in any of i;.e ■ 
to Isaac, it is probable he built his own house, which he later c!. 
self as a two-story dwelling, a salt box type with long .slopi; 
other fourth division houses. The frames were of white o; . .. ..;:..c

plaster made of ground clam shells. There v/erc clay "pits" r.ear ...o ::.<:: liie 
remains of which are still visible. The kitchen fireplace was so huge that 
the whole family might sit in the chimney corners on two forms or settles. 
Logs of cord wood length were burned on the hearth and thirty Ci^rds were 
considered sufficient for one winter's supply. Smaller fireplaces were in ihe 
other rooms. To the rear of the house rose a rocky hill aftcrw.'ird known 
as Clough's Hill and away to the south ran the thread-like S;^ -.r. 

Near the barn was a ''casey" (Cache) or cave later built ir.to t 

surrounds the back yard. The old house burned about 1S50 and was . 
by the present cottage type house built by 1856. By 172S there v. 
danger from hostile Indians but about a mile away stood the garrisi... .:....-.

from Haverhill. Amid such surroundings the little family of Isaac -j^nd Sr.raii

tion for a man who helped to found two c.irly churches, was one of I.,.- \uA 
selectmen during a time when town governnu-nt was wracked Jjy flispute, and 
was a commissioned officer in the defense company of the little hclllemeni. 
The first and nearest church was organized in Meihucn and the mceiiiiR 
house completed in 1729 and on Oct. 29 of ilial year Is;iac was one of twenty- 
four men who signed the convenant. .\ nioiiih later Sarah and other wom.-ii 
were admitted. This arrangement soon became unsatisfactory becau.se ilic 
parishioners had to go a long distance on foot over rough paths and in 17.55 
they were given permi.ssion by the Haverhill proprietors to form a new parish 
of their own, called the "Second Church in Methuen." The meeting hou.se 
was erected in 1738 and formally dedicated in 1740 with Rev. Abner Bayley 
as minister. Isaac Clough signed the covenant of this church and his wife and 
many of his family were included in its membership. 

For one hundred years Massachusetts had claimed almost all the terri- 
tory of New Hampshire but with the rapid growth of the province the dispute 
over boundaries was taken up by the king in council. In 1740 he declared 
that the northern boundary of Massachusetts should be three miles distant 
from the north side of the Merrimack River from the Atlantic Ocean to 
Pawtucket Falls {Lo\velI) and then in a straight line due west until it met 
his Majesty's other governments. This line was surveyed in 1741 and is essen- 
tially the same today. But this settlement brought new troubles because parts 
of Haverhill, Methuen and Dracut were cut off from their local governments. 
The governor granted them a temporary government, calling these places 
Haverhill District, Methuen District, and Dracut District. 

On April 21, 1742 the citizens of Methuen District (Salem) proceeded 
to the meeting house in Methuen which was eight miles from Haverhill to 
hold their first town meeting. Isaac Clough was one of the three selectmen 
chosen and served until 1744. He was also on the committee to divide the 
parsonage lots. On Jan. 3, 1743-4 a sum of money was voted for Rev. Mr. 
Bayley but for some reason the money was not collected. Public indignation 
threatened the selectmen with prosecution but finally the money was raised 
and the selectmen were not prosecuted. 

The governor of New Hampshire granted a charter to the new town of 
Salem in 1750 and Isaac served as surveyor of highways in 1751, 1754 and 
1755, constable and tax collector in 1759 and was called "Deacon" in 1758. 
He was known quite generally as "Lieut. Isic Clough" and gained this title 
in 1 744 as a commissioned officer in the sixth regiment of militia in the pro-

He was a farmer. In his will Samuel— 2 mentioned that his father, John 
Clough— 1, had willed "a considerable estate to his two sons, Samuel— 3 and 
Ebenezer — 3." Each of these grandsons received one half of all the land that 
John — 1 owned in Amesbury. 

Samuel— 3 was married on Dec. 12, 1706 to Mary BlaisdcU of Ames- 
bury. A tradition has been passed down among the descendants of Samuel — 3 
that probably between 1736 and 1740 Indians attacked his home. The four 
older children were living elsewhere, but Mercy, John, Thomas, Elizabeth 
and Ebenezer and their parents were probably massacred. No records remain 
of these seven Cloughs. 

The tradition is told that Jemima was hidden in a churn and a small 
boy, probably Jonathan, was concealed within a tall clock. The Indians dis- 
covered these little children and carried them away captives to their village 
and treated them kindly. Years later, when an epidemic threatened to exter- 
minate the inhabitants of the Indians' village, a friendly squaw returned the 
two children to Amesbury. Perhaps they found a home with their oldest 
brother, Peter Clough.

The will of David is copied at Salem, Mass. in the Probate Court Records. 
(No. 5655) His inventory lists four beds and a trundle bed. Also mentions 
clothing, looking glasses, sheets, pillowcases, napkins, tablecloths; all willed 
as David desired, although in all probability the linens had been woven by 
his wives and daughters. Also listed were chests, chairs, pewter, plates, 
platters, bowl, 2 pitchers and earthenware; articles of household use. His 
looms, cattle, swine, sheep, farming tools and land indicated a prosperous 
family living. Such documents prove that the property belonged to the head 
of the family to be disposed as he wished. The wife seems unable to claim 
even the household furnishings that she had used all of her married life. 
David distributed them among his daughters in his own masculine manner, 
as the law permitted him to do. He inherited the home of his father, "The 
Buttonwoods."

The story about the first communion table tliat was used in llie first 
meeting house in Sahsbury was related by Mrs. Frances I'ettcngill, Historian 
of Salisbury, Mass. This table was a trestle type and was constructed by a 
local carpenter without doubt, although its origin is unknown and no mark 
upon it indicates the name of its maker. That the person who designed and 
made this piece was an expert in his craft is proved by the hand carved pattern 
on a cross piece of the frame beneath the projecting top. On the side that 
faced the congregation was this pattern of interlocking circles, said to repre- 
sent eternity, and within each circle was a rosette of four petals resembling 
a clover leaf. A comparison with other early trestle tables indicated that its 
period is not later than 1660. The top is seven feet, five inches long and about 
three feet wide. 

When the first meeting house at Salisbury was razed and a new church 
edifice was erected about a century ago, a load of relics was sold to a dealer 
in Exeter for eight dollars, the table valued at two dollars of the entire price 
of the load. Sometime later the famous collector, Wallace Nutting, paid 
$600.00 for the table, but was persuaded to sell to a customer for $700.00 
and the table was sold again for an additional $150.00. 

Years passed and Wallace Nutting found the table listed for sale in an 
antique shop in New York City and Uiis time he paid $1600.00 for the piece. 
Mr. Nutting kept this table as long as he lived. In his third book about early 
furniture, he states that this Salisbury Communion Table is the most im- 
portant table in this country, and a picture of it may be seen among the group 
of tables in Mr. Nutting's book. 

After the death of its owner, the table was placed in the Woodworth 
Athaneum in Hartford, Connecticut where it is insured for $15,000.00.

salary of Rev. Fogg. A third petitioned for a tavern to be licensed at Hampton

former tavern keepers, this petition was dismissed. These references to data

S.iiibi)rn at Kingston by Rev. Joseph Sccombe, a famous clergyman of that 

vicinity. 

I,o\e was born in Kingston on June 10, 1726, the daughter of Jonathan 
.md 'rheodate Sanborn. Probate records (\'ol. VI, page 564, N. H. St. P.) 
Mate that in his will in 1760, Jonathan Sanborn bequeathed to his daughter, 
Love, wife of Reuben Clough, 100 pounds, a considerable bequest to a woman 
ill those days. 

They lived in Sandown where Reuben was a prominent citizen. 

Copies of records of Sandown in the Office of the Secretary of State at 
Concord, N. H. show that Reuben was frequently elected a selectman or 
parish clerk for the town. The meeting house that was built in 1770-1774 and 
standing in 1950 in its original construction is mentioned on the books with 
srvcral interesting items, recorded by Reuben. In July, 1774, at a town meet- 
ing: "To sec if the Parish will collor the meeting house. To ."^ce if the- Parish 
will have two pews. To see if the Parish will build Galires on the Back Side 
of the Meeting House and on Each Side of the Pulpit." 

In 1756, Reuben records as Parish Clerk: "To see if the Parish will raise 
•;0 pounds for schooling and passed in the negative." "To see if the Parish 
will raise 30 pounds for schooling and passed in the negative." "To see if the 
Parish will give Mr. Cotton anything, passed in the negative." Mr. Cotton 
was the minister. However his wood was corded at his door at $4.00 per cord, 
•"every man his share." 

"Sargent Reuben Clough's mark for cattle and other cretues is a crop of 
the Left Ear and a slit in the middle of the Same Ear."

Mass. About 1761 he married Mehitable Gould Shed. Aaron was a private 
in Capt. Stephen Merrill's Co. of Salisbury, Col. Caleb Cushing's Regt. that 
marched on April 20, 1775 to the alarm when the news of the Battle of Lexing- 
ton reached Salisbury. This service proves the response of New England men 
to the move by the British on April 18 and 19, 1775. Aaron returned home in 
3/2 days, as all these volunteers did from the "Lexington Alarm." He joined 
the expedition to Crown Point when General Burgoyne invaded the Hudson 
Valley in the summer of 1777. He served the town of Salisbury as selectman 
from 1772 to 1777 and again in 1784. The meeting house of the West Parish 
was seventy years old and in need of repairs. A town meeting was called on

Salisbury, Mass. On Jan. 4, 1723 (Hoyt, page 457) he married Sarah Ercnch 
(b. A'larch IS, 1708, dau. of Timothy — 4 and Mary (Harriman) French of 
Salisbury.) They went to Kingston, N. H. where he received 84 acres of land 
by the will of his father, Samuel — 3, who died the same year that Theophilus 
was married. His name appears upon the petition to separate the East Parish 
from Kingston in 1738. Also upon the petition for a grant of land "Between 
Winnepeseokke and Pemissiwassett River" in 1738. The name of Theophilus 
is not found on the voters' list in Kingston of 1727. Probably he had not left 
Salisbury at that time. The date of his death is not recorded, but his wife, 
Sarah, was appointed administratrix of his will on Jan. 3, 1753 and his estate 
was divided on Feb. 7, 1754.

The Massachusetts Bay Colony continued to attempt, at least, to collect 
t.ixi-s from the citizens along the border between the two Colonies, claiming 
th.it the boundary line was not definitely established. The above experience 
;.r.,b;ihly inilucnccd the sons of the Clough Family to seek homes further 
i:;!.nd, although forests covered the territory and there was danger from 
Ir.iiian raids and wild animals, especially packs of wolves. 

Since no other Clough named Jeremiah was in existence in 1731, it seems 
i:i-<iii;il)le to consider that this son of Thomas — 3 was living in Kingston, 
N". H. at this time on land that was claimed by Xew Hampshire and Massa- 
V iui.^etL;. On Xov. 7, 1734, he married Deliverance Leavitt of Hampton, X. H.

THE CHARTER FOR CANTERBURY 
"To begin at the head of the town of Chichester and to run north- 
west by the town of Gilmantown to Winassosawquc Pond, or River 
that runs westerly of said pond, and from the first place where it 
began, then to run southwest seven miles on the head of the aforesaid 
town of Chichester, and then to run northwest to the aforesaid river 
that comes out of the pond aforesaid, and then the river to be the 
bounds on the northwest end, provided it do not intrench on any 
former legal grant and that the same be a town corporate by the 
name of Canterbury . . ." 

The Proprietors were to build seventy houses and settle a family in each 
house within three years. Also, a public meeting house to be built within four 
years. The Charter was dated May 14, 1727 and signed by Lieut. Gov. Johu 
Wentworth. 

No Proprietor was named Clough. Since Jeremiah was not one of the 
grantees, he purchased lots 68 and 69 near the fort. His deed was dated 1738, 
although he probably was in the township in 1736. His brother, Thomas— 4, 
bought lot 73 in 1740 while he was a resident of Salisbury, and lot 79 in 1743 
after he settled in Canterbury. These two brothers were among the most 
prominent settlers of the town. 

Jeremiah married, on February 16, 173cS, Sarah Elkins and he named 
their first child Deliverance, and their third son, Leavilt, thus perpetuating 
the names of his first wife in his offspring. Jeremiah immediately became the 
leading citizen of the new settlement. He was elected selectman of the com- 
mittee that conveyed the meeting-house built by the Proprietors to the town. 
The frame of this meeting-house is still in use in 1951 for the "Tosv-n House," 
although the building has been moved across the green from the original site. 
Thomas Clough, yeoman paid "Forty Pounds for the pew at the right of the 
front door; and Twenty-eight Pounds for the "Third Pew Ground on the e;:st 
side of the front door partly under the east gallery stairs." Jeremiah purchased 
the pew partly under the west side for Twenty-seven Pounds, another on the 
east side for Thirty-four Pounds, and then paid Twenty-seven Pounds for tlic 
"Pew Ground on the west side of the parsonage pew in tlie northwest corner," 
a conspicuous place for his family. A tract of land was divided into ten lots of 
100 acres each, called the "Gospel Lots" in the "North Fields" now a part o: 
the town of Northtield, N. H. for the support of the "gospel ministry." Jcrc-

40 acres that was granted to John Hayes of Dover when he became a Pro- 
prietor of the Town of Canterbury. Since the brothers of Ephraim were 
settlers in Canterbury, probably this Ephraim is the Clough who purchased 
this land. One son is recorded.

Mass. In 1740 he purchased lot 73 in Canterbury, and between that lime and 
1743 he settled in Canterbury and purchased lot 79. Thomas married, or. 
Dec. 10, 1741, Mary Call in Canterbury, although she is supposed to have 
come from Salisbury. Thomas was active in the protection of tlie homes fror.i 
the hostile Indians. His name is on the muster roll on duty in the winter of 
1746-47^ and he was one of the signers on a petition which was addressed to 
the Provincial Government for a garrison to protect the grist mill at West 
Concord, where the settlers went for their grists. Finally the French and 
Indian War brought real danger to the home of Thomas Clough. 

In 1757 the people heard an alarm and retired to their garrison house 
where they remained for some length of time, although after the danger 
seemed to decrease, the men began to work in the fields. One day four Indians 
of the St. Francis tribe appeared near the house of Thomas Clough. Soon liu'y 
entered and took some meal from the chest. Then they went to the field :iii.l 
captured the nephew of Mr. Clough, Moses Jackman, and a negro who Ii\>.!

. . . Continuing her calls, she walked toward the garrison house until she 

ir enough so that she dared to run to tell the alarming news about the 

. -. In vain the search was hastened. The boys were carried to Canada, 

i.ed and then sold to the French in Montreal. After the restoration of 

tin- widowed mother of Moses employed a man to bring him home and 

ii\ing in Boscawen in 1823. 

.Mr. Clough paid redemption money for the negro, Dorset, and he started 

•., u.iI'n to Canterbury. He missed his way and was badly frozen so that he 

t Ix/ih feet. Dy some means he was brought to Canterbury and Mr. Clough 

:;i;..>rted him as long as he lived. 

!»'.iring 175S the Indians were so menacing that Thomas Clough wrote 

r.-Tiprictors of the settlement, "Our Indian corn, our hay and other 

iiiing almost spoiled for want of caretaking, of being surprised almost 

!.,;_. li.iy on account of Indians and hardly dare stir from one garrison to 

.ir.Dthor without a large company together." 

.^^everal stockades had been constructed and at the town meeting on 
.\i;uth 16, 175S, when appropriating money for schools, it was voted, "That 
r.uh fort's jieople shall enjoy the benefit of their own money in their own 
;'. :t." 

In tiie midst of these Indian troubles, the inhabitants discovered that the 
iwjiy of iheir charter was without attestation, and they feared that the original 
iharter was destroyed when the house of Richard Waldron was burned at 
Hiuhani, since Mr. Waldron was Secretary of the Province. Unless their 
vh.irter w.is confirmed, their land might be claimed by other settlers if the 
cevi ;^iivernor should desire to grant their land to others. 

Thomas Clough, housewrighl, and Josiah Miles, yeoman, were ai)p(jiiiied 
.1 ommittcc to secure the title to the property by appearing at Portsmouth 
on J.muary 16, 1756 with the copy of the charter. The Council ordered that 
the copy be recorded the following day. 

The following paragraph is quoted from the History of Canterbury by 
j.inies Otis Lyford, page 45: "Thomas Clough who served on this committee, 
u.is a brother of Capt. Jeremiah Clough, Sr. He was distinguished in civic 
.iii.iirs of the town as his brother was in defense. For many years he served as 
lown clerk and selectman, besides acting upon important committees. 

"Several times he was entrusted with missions that concerned the welfare

ture that Thomas built, now owned by the daughter of Joseph L. Clough 
(1950) who was the first treasurer of the John Clough Genealogical Society.

married Xathaniel Whitiicr who was born on Aug. 12, 171 1, the son of Rciiben 
Whitlier. They resided at Salisbury, Mass. A descendant, H. Warren I'oss of 
Mount Vernon, Maine wrote in 1946: "There is a well authenticated story 
in our family that in an Indian raid, Hannah Clou-h was ca|)tured when a 
small girl by the Indians who took her to an encampment in Maine on Sandy 
River where the present village of Farmington Falls now sland.v It is a bcau- 
liful region and she was impressed with the beauty of her surroundings and 
the distant mountains, the fertile intervales where the Indians raised corn, 
the big trees, and the winding river. 

"She was made to work in the fields but for how long we have no knowl- 
edge. Xeither do we know how she finally escaped. But she did escape and 
returned to Salisbury where she married Xathaniel Whittier. 

"I do not know when the marriage took place but they were published 
at Salisbury on Nov. 16, 1734. One of the wedding gifts was a set of silver 
.spoons engraved with the initials H.C.W. A part of the set was passed into 
the possession of their oldest son, Benjamin. From Benjamin they passed to 
his daughter, Ruth who married her cousin, Jedediah Whittier. The spoons 
then fell to their daughter, Hannah who married Alvin Bradley. The ne.\t 
owner was Wesley Bradley, their son. Upon his death, they became the pos- 
session of his son, Ir\'ing R. Bradley and his wife who now live in Mount 
Vernon, Maine (1946) and both of whom are Whittier descendants. 

"Incidentally, Hannah's oldest son in his later years returned to the 
scene of his mother's captivity, bought a large tract of land there, built a 
dam and a saw mill and the first frame house in the region." 

Another descendant states that four of Hannah's sons settled in Maine 
and a large number of their descendants are scattered from Machias, Maine 
to California. The greater number of die Whittiers of Maine are descendants 

of Xathaniel and Hannah.

at Poplin, N. H. New Hampshire Town I'aptrs, Vol. IX, pa^c 699, I. . . 
sketch of town politics with an amusing hint of the spirit of the early volets. 
In 1775, Zacheus Clough, Esq. was elected a delegate from the Town oi 
Poplin, N. H. to the Provincial Congress at Exeter. When Zachcus exprtssK] 
a doubt that his health would permit his attendance, Deacon Stephen Slocpc- 
was appointed to be his substitute in case Zacheus' "health should be so Inv 
pard that he could not go." The following letter is quoted: "Sir. Ahct my 
Compliments to you This is to Inform you that I am not -Vbie to attena at 
Exeter at the Debety's meeting, therefore Expects you will attcr-d. 
"to Deaken Sleeper Poplin May IS, 1775" 

While Zacheus did not attend at the beginning of the session, he assumed 
his seat later and drew pay for travel and attendance. A few of the voters 
objected to paying this bill and Deacon Sleeper testified that Zachcus io!<l 
him the day of the town meeting that he would not go to Exeter if his htulih 
did permit it. Then Deacon Sleeper said, "After he had done his Sunim.-r 
work" Zacheus went to Exeter. However, the town paid the expense acroii;:: 
to Zacheus. The following year, John Clough was appointed to be the dcle,i;.ii.- 
to the Congress at Exeter.

and was on a committee in 1754 to prosecute ta.\ delinquents. In 1742 he- 
signed a petition for a town charter. He lived on the Province Road leading 
from Methuen, Mass., to the Salem Meeting House, near a "new" bridge over 
tlic Spicket River, at a corner known locally as Clough's Corner, later changed 
to Foster's Corner, and owned 30 acres of land there. His wife was a member 
of the First Church of Methuen, Mass. in 1737, was dismissed in 1744 and 
on May 20, 1744, as the wife of Josiah Clough was admitted to the First 
Church of Salem, N. H. She administered the estate of her husband dated 
Oct. 14, 1756 which amounted to 237 pounds, 1 shilling. Her name appears 
as a widow on Salem tax lists until 1759.

is interesting because it mentions the path to Edward Clark's sawmill located

Salisbury must have been his birthi)lace. Their graves arc presuniai,..> .u .... 
okl burying ground in Salem, N. H. but arc not marked. Memberi of ihc 
family say that many unmarked plots near the graves of Lieut. Is;»ac and 
Sarah Clough are graves of other Cloughs. Sarah Clough was admiitc<l to Uic 
First Church of Salem August 31, 1760 while Wyman owned the covenant 
but did not come to full communion. This was known as the "Half-Way 
Covenant." Wyman's name v/as spelled also Weymon, Wimon or Wiman and 
one record curiously spells it, "Wiseman." He paid a soldier's Ux in 1777 
during the American Revolution. About 1757 he went to New York on horse- 
back to seek his brother, William, who had been taken prisoner by the French 
during the French and Indian War and taken to the Bastille, France, for a 
year. Fortunately he found him among the returned soldiers but William was 
ill and the two brothers could travel only a few miles a day on horseb.ick 
until they reached home three months later. Wyman married about 1 760, the 
date not known, and owned 30 acres of land near his father's homestead and 
was the oldest living son when his father died. He probably lived in the old 
home most of his life and inherited it in 1765. His descendanu for many 
generations have owned this property since. He is mentioned in the tax lists 
beginning in 1759 and includes the year 1796. In 1784 he gave a note to his 
brother, William and this receipt has been one point of proof between the two 
families, because that same year William went with his family to Lyman, 
X. H., and the two families lost sight of each other for many generations. The 
story of the return of William from his imprisonment and the rccciiJl were 
preserved and many years later in anotlier generation the two families linked 
their histories together again. 

His wife's family has also been the subject of .speculation. The first clue 
was the mention of his daughter, Sarah Clough, in the will of John Hall who 
died May 31, 1789, aged 79 years at Salem, N. H. Further and more con- 
clusive proof was provided in Alfred Poor's History of Merrimack Valliy, 
p. 132.

and Indian War for three years, was captured, and carried 
confined in the Bastille for a year. He returned with other re: . 

to New York, where his brother, Wyman, found him and returned with hin-. 
to their home in Salem, N. H. He is first mentioned in lax lists in 1739 and 
was deeded land by his father in 1760. He was a town constable in 1767, 
surveyor of highways in 1777 in which year he also paid a soldier's lax for 
Continental soldiers. He entered the American Revolution without enlistment 
and was at the Battle of Bunker Hill. He lived near the other Cloughs in 
Salem, but further to the west near Policy Brook where he is said to have 
operated a grist mill. He left Salem about 1785 and went to Lyman, N. H., 
where he located on Clough Hill near the Great Rock. He evidently h.id a 
grist mill here because he or another Clough found three or four Indians 
prowling around the mill one day and promptly dispatched them with blows 
of an iron pipe to happier hunting grounds. He often found it convenient to 
send his boys to drive the bears out of the wheat. He petitioned the state of 
New Hampshire for relief in 1786. Many of his descendants became prominent 
in northern New Hampshire. He is buried in the Cemetery on Parker Hill in 
Lyman, N. H., and his grave is marked by a stone with the initials W. C.

of Hampton Falls was executed for the murder of Peter Clough of the same 
place. It appeared upon evidence, that a quarrel had subsisted between them 
for a long time. On the 12th day of December, 1754, they accidentally met 
at the house of Noah Dow, where some high words and threats passed between 
them. Clough challenged Dow to go out of the house to fight & went out 
himself. Dow followed & as he went out, took up his brother's hoe which stood 
in the entry, & with it struck Clough a blow on the side of the head which 
instantly killed him. Dow was arrested & examined before the honorable

and is the house of worship for this section of the town. There on lots that 
surround the ancient village green several families of descendants of Samuel 
— t have their homes. 

Three sons and another daughter were born in Arundel. Samuel soon 
participated in the affairs of the town. In March 1762 he was appointed 
tythingman at the meeting house, was a constable on March 5, 1771, sealer 
of leather on March 9, 1772 and 1773 and also surveyor in 1773. 

That he owned cattle is evidenced by a record that states, "Mr. Samuel 
Clough marks all his chattel with top cut of the left ear and two slits in 
same." 

When Samuel died is unknown, as is his burial place. A small family 
cemetery on his land may contain his dust. Three separate burial plots are 
located upon his 100 acres where his descendants are lying.

The above letters are copied from original papers that were discovered 
by Samuel C. Clough, Genealogist of the John Clough Genealogical Society, 
in a trunk in Kennebunkport. The papers were preserved by his ancestor, 
Joel-5 Clough. 

The reference in the latter letter to the fact that Jemima and her Brother 
Samuel are all who are living of a large family may confirm the tradition 
about the Indian massacre at Clough Hill in Amesbury about 1736. 

Jemima died at Hopkinton on April 28, 1S16 and her husband died on

The Fifth Generation compri.scc! the children of f;imilies liiui sclllcil in 
ihe townships that surrounded S;ilisi)ury, .Mass. Because the wil(iernf.s.s. in 
many places, had been planted to I'roprietors, so called "Rij;hls" to seclion.s 
of these grants could be purchased from the Proprietors. In the wills of iwn 
of the Fourth Generation, frequently Rights in the grants that were situated 
north of Kingston, N. H., were bequeathed to the sons of the Fifth Generation. 
Thus, either by legacy or purchase, the Cloughs were pioneers in many town.-, 
in central Xew Hampshire. 

This generation includes soldiers in the French and Indian Wars, anc 
in the American Revolution. After the latter war, three of these Revolutionary 
.soldiers migrated to Maine and other men settled along the coast and in the 
interior of Maine. 

Several of the descendants of Jonathan — 3 left Connecticut for Belcher- 
town, Mass., and others crossed the boundary into New York to both 
Washington and Madison Counties. 

The Fifth Generation were obliged to build roads and bridges, fell ine 
primeval forest, clear the land of stumps and pile the stones into walls. The 
homes that they erected are still standing and many a hill retains its name, 
Clough Hill.

Province of New Hampshire 
(Seal) Be it resolved 

That on the 12th Day of Dec. in the twenty third year of his

tys Justices of the same Province afore said of swearing one profane 
oath. 

Given under my Hand and seal the day and year aforesaid 
Tho Wibird

Since this Jonathan is the only man whose dates coincide witn this 
record, probably he was the culprit.

Hampton Falls, X. H. In 1755 he was a member of the 2nd. Company, under 
I'etcr Gilman in the French and Indian War. He marched to Alb;iny, X. V.. 
by way of Fort Xo. 4, now Charlestown, X. H. The company saw no 
active service and was discharged and ordered to return home early in the 
winter. On Feb. 9, 175S, he married Rachel French. Probate Records, Vol. VI, 
page 301 mention the estate of Ann French, wife of Jacob French of Brent- 
wood. "Administration of Ann Clough of Brentwood granted to Jacob French. 
South Hampton, yoeman, Aug. 28, 1758." The estate was £500, and was her 
"personal estate." This quote is an important consideration, because in 1 758 
the property rights of women were not well established legally and married 
women had few individual property rights. Probably Rachel French Clough 
inherited a part of her mother's estate of £500, a considerable fortune for a 
woman to own at that period. Xo records have been discovered of children 
by this marriage.

N. Y., in Capt. Jeremiah Marston's Company, of Hamptoi., 

Goffe's Regi., in French and Indian War in 1762. He enlisted jwiy i, i::- : 

the Revolution and was in Capt. Parker's Company, a private of X. Ya; : 

Cumberland County. (See "Mass. Soldiers and Sailors") 

This Company was stationed on the seacoast in Cumber!;. :..; v

served until Dec. 31, 1775. Amos was also on the list of men, Cu;.;

returned to Brigadier Samuel Thompson, Dec. 3, 1776. "Oa; 
Yarmouth," written in 1S33 has se%'eral references to Am.; 
(Page 1110), "It is worthy to be recorded that a daughter of t.. 
who drew a ten acre lot 106 years ago, is living at the age of 92 anu . 
her faculties in an unusual degree. She is a little deaf, has never used s]>. 
and describes with vivacity the scenes of her youth. She is accomp;... 
her lengthened pilgrimage by her husband, also over 90 years of a^^e .;:. . 
retaining his senses as well as his wife. They have been married 68 years." in 
the same volume, Amos is quoted, "I married my present wife the spring 
before (1765) and moved to the farm I now live on the ne.xt fall. (1766) I 
bought the land of Powell." 

Registry of Deeds, "Amos Clough bought of Jeremiah Powell J^ 
of lot 68 (50 acres) in 1763. In 1821 Amos sold to his son, John, 
(lot 6S) with stock and buildings." (Recorded in 1835.) This home 
was on the Tuttle Road, Cumberland, Maine. 

From a manuscript collection of John Lewis of North Yarmouth .•\:-.:ii>. 
is quoted: "I suppose Col. Powell was about 47 or 48 years old when I c.u'.v- 
to North Yarmouth and was as much at 55 years old when he was marrl^ii. 
(1768) His mother v<as sister to Gov. Dummer from whom Col. Powell loU! 
me he received a large estate. Powell was a very pleasant man and used his 
workmen well, we used to have rum in hay time." Bethia seems to have a 
different idea to quote from the same manuscript: "Old Mrs. Powell, widow 
of John Powell died in Boston. She was a very pious woman, but I have been 
told that her husband was 'pretty wicked'. "

236— RICHARD (John, John, John, John) Born in 1751 at Brcr.uv,,,- : 
N. H. It is probable that he followed his brother, Amos, to Maine, . 
Richard Clough was living in the vicinity of Yarmouth, Maine at the corri^i 
date and no other son by his name is on record there. 

237 — SAMUEL (John, John, John, John) Born in 1752 at Brentwi.n.i. 
N. H. No trace of Samuel is found in Brentwood. However, Simiuel {'In;; ■■i 
of Durham, Maine is reported to have come there from Bcrw! 
town where he met Quakers who were moving from Massac.;,. .. 
vicinity of Yarmouth, Maine. Since his brother, Amos, possii)!) 
brother, Richard, and their Welch relatives were already in Norili \'.. 
there is rea.son to believe that Samuel of Brentwood went to Durhair., ... .. 
Evidently a former group of Quakers had already occupied farm.s in 
vicinity of Durham, including North Yarmouth because tlic girl v.!;. :., 
Samuel married was born in that town. Doubtless Samuel visited his rel:;- 
tives there and met Sarah Estes. 

A Samuel Clough came from Berwick, Maine to Durham, r^Iaine in li'' 
second group of settlers who were Quakers. Samuel and Edwaril Estes Ijou.r.i 
land in Durham then called Royalsborough, on June 10, 1771, lot 16 w.is 
owned by Samuel and lot 15 by Joseph Estes, the brother of the girl who:-:, 
Samuel married. Sarah Estes was born at North Yarmouth, Maine on April 
16, 1752. In the "Records of the Woman's Monthly Meeting of iricmis i..r 
Herpswell and Falmouth" in the list of marriages from 1751 to 170,; 
3, "at our Monthly Meeting held at Falmouth ye 2Sth of ye 3rd mo. . „ ....

Samuel and Sarah were married is not on record. Sarah's mother, Patic:'.cc 
(Carr) was very prominent in the Quaker meetings. Samuel Cltju.4h died afier 
making his will on Jan. 10, 1799. Sarah married Jedediah Hall in Litchfu-KL

only with the aid of a magnifying glass can they be read, Samuel and Sarah 

must have been forgiven by the Society. 

Samuel did not live to see his family grow to maturity, he died at the 
age 47 years. His sons became men of whom he would have had reason to be 
proud and his descendants in later generations became distinguished citizens.

granted in 1764 to a group of Proprietors in order to settle a dispute be- 
tween certain parties of Hampstead and Kingston relative to grants of land 
that were claimed by both groups. Enough territory was to be transferred 
to claimants of Kingston to satisfy them. This settled the dispute and the 
name. Unity, commemorates the happy termination of the situation.

Nottingham and North-Woods were separated in 1773 and became ih- 
town of Northwood. There Caleb built his home which is standing in 1952. 
In the 1790 Census, Caleb registered in Northwood, 2 males over 16 year».

Century by the Federal Government: "Caleb Clough, New Hamp. Tvt. 
Hilton's Co. Wingate's N. H. Regiment, Rev. War, July 17, 1S17." 

Elizabeth Cooper Clough died in Gilmanton, N. H., in April, 1S31 and

at Salisbury, Mass. His father was killed at Crown Point in the French and 
Indian War. On Dec. 2, 1770 he married Elizabeth Mace. 

Among the court records that are preserved in the files at the Hiiiorical 
Library at Concord, N. H., is a marriage license that Winthrop was convic'td 
of forging. He was brought before the Supreme Court at Portsmouth, X. H., 
on the first Tuesday in February, 1771. In a trial by jury, Samuel I'jroolcs, 
foreman, he pleaded guilty and "put himself on the mercy of the Court." 
Wintlirop was fined Si. 7S. 9d. 

He presented the forged license to Samuel Perley, minister, and was 
married to Elizabeth Mace. No further information is defmitcly known about 
this family, although they may have had a son, Nathan, who lived in Vcr- 
<;hire, Vermont. Winthrop may have participated in the Revolution, for a 
Winthrop Clough of Haverhill, Mass., was at Ticonderoga in 1776 and this 
man is the only Winthrop whose dates correspond correctly.

THE FIFTH GENERATION 

l.rother-in-law, James Crosett, to Whitehall, Washington County, N. Y. 
Jonathan Clou-h settled near what is known as Belcher in the town of 
Hebron on wliat is known as the Isaac Oatman farm. It is most i.' ^ :. u 

not a stick of timber had been cut on his land when he came, 'i . ..o 

church, no school and they were miles from a Krisl mill. His father-in-law, 
\Viliiam Crosett, was one of the men who had an interest in Kemp's Patent 
which covered the land that Jonathan settled. Jonatlian Clou^h is found in 
the 1790 census; 1 male, 4 females: in the 1800 census; but not in the ISIO 
census. We believe that Jonathan w;is twice married as on an a(ljoinin;< 
farm is an old graveyard in which we found a stone marked 'Mrs. A!)iKail 
.Allen Clough, aged 60, Febru.ary, 1S1.3.' There is another stone like Abiiiail's 
broken off and unreadable. He also had several children, one of whom i.s 
believed to have changed his name from Clough to Clow."

Stafford, Conn. On Nov. 5, 1771 he married Mary Ferry at J'eichertown,

eight children were born there. Mary Ferry was born in Springfield, Mass., 
on Jan. 14, 1744 and died there of Spotted Fever on May 31, :il4. Joseph

at Salisbury, Mass. He was baptized on May S, 1740. He and hi.-; brother. 
Abner, went to Gilmanton, N. H., a town that was then bcin:< opened for 
settlement, where they arrived on October 22, 1764. The History of Gilmnnion' 
reads: "Some important and valuable citizens were added to li.c ini'mi 
settlement, among them Abner and Samuel Clough." Samuel married Mehii- 
able Dudley, daughter of Dea. Stephen and Hannah (Sanborn) Dudley who 
came from Exeter in 1765. His name was signed to the "Test Act" which 
meant that they were "opposing the hostile proceedings of the British Fleci., 
and armies against the United Colonies." The farms that the Cloughs cleared 
remained in their possession until about 1950 and the houses that they 
erected were then standing. Several hills still bear the name. "Clough Hill" 
in this vicinity. 

The following deed proved the prosperity of Samuel and has the siifr.a- 
ture of a prominent man, Joseph Badger of Gilmanton, N. H., and other 
names of families of distinction, and the phraseology is characteristic of the 
period.

THE FII-TH GEXERATIOX 

The first inhabitants of Gilmanton arrived in 1761, w:ilk: 
shoes the twelve miles from the nearest settlement to the soi;i. 
John Wentworth demanded that roads be constructed and one of 
the Province Road from Durham to Coos, now Haverhill, \. H., 
passed through Gilmanton. The Clouj^hs of Salisbury, M. . 

Hampton, N. H., began to purchase large tracts of this 

which was forested with giant oaks and pines and the floor of these 
was fertile soil for cultivation. 

Probably the two older sons of Samuel — 4 of Salisbury, S. 
Abner, were the first Cloughs to own land in Gilmanton, soon f(.. 
two younger brothers, Isaiah and Daniel and later brother Jon... 
two cousins, Abel (Number 339) and Simon (Number 343) arrl . 
the same year. The farms that these men cleared remained in the . 
of their descendants until about 1950 and on various "Clough" h!;;.s i.,>. 
homes that they erected were standing.

Gilmanton. Mr. Lane had preserved several of the original deeds that Lt- 
longed to his step-father, Daniel Clough and he generously presented ihem 
to a descendant of Daniel Clough of the tenth generation from John — 1, Miss 
Elizabeth M. Hannon of New York City. Because these originals present 
many important items of historical connections with England and o.Mcials 
of early New Hampshire and because the phraseology of 200 years ajjo is 
worthy of attention, several of these papers have been included in this brief 
sketch of the Daniel Clough branch of our Family.

at Salem, N. H. His mother was Abi-ail Hastings oi " ' • Mass. li-.s 

father died when Thineas was six years of auc and n.. '-c is knov,:i 

about his childhood. He doubtless lived in Salem or its vicinity, because h. 
married Sarah Ladd on Dec. 29, 177S, the daughter of Asa and Sarah (Mer- 
rill) Ladd recorded in the vital records of Haverhill, Mass. 

When in his early twenties, Phincas went to Tinmouth, now Middleiown. 
Rutland County, Vermont, a wilderness at that time. Phineas was one of :.vc 
men who were there before the Revolution, building mills and a mcclmghoui^e. 
When iiurgoyne was invading the Hudson Valley, I'hineas joined thi- 
Vermont militia at Manchester, Vt., and fought for 145 days in Capt. El.ph 
Dewey's Company, Col. Samuel Ilerrick's Regt. of Rangers, both names l.M 
were distinguished in the History of Vermont. During this term of service 
Phineas fought in the Battle of Bennington. 

Then he returned to Salem and married Sarah and they went to Mid.la- 
town to live. Again in 1780 and '81 Phineas served 13 days in the Vermont 
militia to protect Castleton and four more days at Southerland and won th. 

title of iSlajor Clough. 

^t the first town meeting in Middletown, in 1783, Phineas was elected 
one of the town surveyors, a position of responsibility in a new seUlemoni 
where land was being divided for "a rapidly increasing population. At t.u- 
same meeting the town voted: "to work two days on Highways." A petition 
had already been made for the incorporation of the town to the independent 
government of the New Hampshire Grants, or State of Vermont as it became 
in 1791 Titles to land were difiicult to establish owing to conflicting claims 
by both New Hampshire and New York, thus making the duties of a town 
surveyor of unusual importance. The pioneer Clough in Vermont made a real 
reputation in the new country and left a record of achievement that may bc- 
read in the History of Middletown by Hon. Barnes Frisbie. 

"The Gazetteer" mentions Phineas of Middletown and also a Phineas

Since there was only one I'hinc.is in ti nd a part of Tinmoulh . 

included in Middletown, they arc tlw :i. 

Under an account of John Iri.sh and liis brother \Vil!ian> of 'I lo 

we ihul an interesting story, related by Phineas Clough, ' .t- 

latter part of July, 1777. On the first of July, Fort Tii ■ . id 

been captured by Ethan Allen two years earlier, was retaken. The British were 
led by Gen. Burgoyne wlio was striving to reach Albany from C "".\c 

next month the Battle of Bennington (Vermont) took place whili- . h 

were seeking supplies. 

When the news of the surrender of Ticonderoga reached Ti;. 
greater part of the inhabitants moved off to the south to any place 
could find safety. Most of them who stayed on their farms sought protection 
under Gen. Burgoyne. He gave them a guarantee, that in case they did not 
oppose his army, their families and properly should be protected. The two 
brothers Irish availed themselves of this protection. Shortly thereafter the 
Council of Safety at Arlington sent a scouting party into Tinmoulh and 
adjoining towns, to see what was going on among the "Protectioners," and to 
reconnoitre a Tory camp in East Clarendon. This parly consisted of Capt. 
Ebenezer Allen, Lieut. Isaac Clark, and John Train and Phineas Clough, 
private soldiers. 

It was suspected that the brothers Irish were about to join the Tories 
and so they went there, as it was enroute to the Tory camp. Clough gave his 
gun to Train, then went to Irish's house and was told to say that he wanted 
to join the Tories. He spoke to them as directed and they told him he must 
consider himself as their prisoner — they would see about his going to the 
camp. John Irish and Phineas walked near each other toward John's house — 
the latter with a tomahav/k uplifted. The soldiers stealthily approached the 
same house and hid behind the trees. 

They had not been there long, before Clough stepped from the door, 
looked around, ran for the woods. He had gotten over the bars in the dooryard 
when Irish came out after him, — partly dressed, — with a gun in one hand 
and a powder horn in the other. He leaped over the bars and called out to 
Clough to stop or he would shoot him. He was raising his gun, apparently to 
execute his threat, when Allen shot him through the left hand, and knocked 
his gun from him. Irish then turned around, facing Clark who shot him 
through the heart.

About IS50 the old two story sa!t-bo.. type house which h . 
many of the Cloughs since 1 72S, was burned. It is probable that si; c'

Wyman did not live to see it finished but he had provided in '-

450— WILLIAM (William, Isaac, Thomas, John) Born Feb. 10, 175- ..: 
Salem, N. H. On Feb. 25, 1779 he married Hannah Clough (#433) dauRhtcr 
of Isaac Clough, Jr. (#153). They lived at Policy Brook in Salem, X. H. 
further to the East than the other Cloughs. 

Little is known of William's early life but he probably was an apprentice 
in Haverhill, Mass., before 1771. He then took up his residence in ? ' 
X'. H., where he became an influential citizen. He very soon, in 1774, in . 
two pieces of land in which deeds his name is given as "William Clough Jr.", 
thus giving evidence of family relationship to the older William. (*) 

He was so-called from then on for many years, in tax lists, marria.;ic 
record. Revolutionary service records. Association Test in 1776, ia.x for Conti- 
nental soldiers in 1777, etc. 

By 1790 his father had moved away from Salem and he dropped the 
Jr. and remained just "William Clough" until he died. He acquired mucl; 
property and by ISOO he paid a larger tax than any of the other Cloughs in 
town. He held many minor offices, as fence viewer, surveyor of highways, and 
corder of wood. He appraised estates from 1806 to 1816. In 1324 he was o:. 
a committee to divide the town into school districts and District X^'o. 8 where 
he lived was named for him. This district extended as far as his cousin's, 
Wyman Clough, but did not include the adjoining Cloughs to the east. 

He saw service in the American Revolution and was mustered in Caoi.

THE 1-IFTII GENERATION 

464— JOSEPH (Samuel, Samuel, Samuel, John) Born icb. 21 
Kittery, Elaine. He was thirteen years of age when his p; 

the Hutchiiis and other families who moved from Kittery i >.. 

eldest boy Joseph must have shared the hardships of tlie L:.,.nie of life in a 
busy seaport to a farm. He married Elvira (Zurviah) I.' irobahly 

.about the time that he enlisted in the Revolutionary W.ir. 

Only by strctchins^ the ima}|:in.ition is it possible to un<: 
of the e.\citenient in the town of Arundel when the news arrived :i - 
attack at Lcxinj^ton. The training field with the mcctinghou.se of 1 '' ■ 
visited tod.ay and there the men {gathered and at the t.avern i . 
possibility of British privateers entering the harbor and conf... ain.; 
and food supplies of the countryside. 

Immediately the sons of Samuel — 4 started to tramp to i; 
arriving in time to enlist and participate in the Battle of 1; 
them was Joseph. His record in Vol. HI of the Revoluiionury i,::;- .\;..i.^ ■;. 
Massachusetts reads: Clufi Joseph, .Arundel. Capt. Jesse Dorman's Co., Col. 
James Scammon's (30th) regt.; order for bounty coat or its equivalent in 
money dated Cambridge, Oct. 27, 1775. Also, 4th Sergeant in Capt. John 
Elder's Co., Col. Lemuel Robinson's regt.; return dated Ro.xbury, Feb. 16, 
1776. . . also Sergeant in Capt. Joshua Nason's Co., Col. Storer's regt.; en- 
listed Aug. 4, 1777, discharged Nov. 30, 1777 at Overman's Heights, serving; 
4 mos. 3 days with Northern Army. .•\lso on list of men mustered for dcicnie 
of eastern Massachusetts, June 6, 1780, residence Arundel; enlistment 8 mo;. 
He was at Ticonderoga in 1776; at Fishkill in 1778 and served S mos. in 17S0. 

During the following ten years he lived in Arundel and the 1790 Cen.scs 
lists him there with a wife and seven children. He accumulated a considerable 
farm adjoining his father's land. Deeds in the court records at .\lired, Maine 
show that he sold land in 1785, bought 10 acres from his father, adjoinir.- 
his own land and his brother, Noah's in 1788. 

Evidently he learned the trade of his father, for he is called a corawainc-r. 

After the Revolution, continental money was depreciated and man\- 
persons were hard pressed financially. From court records, Joseph was one 
of these men. Probably he was forced to dispose of his property in Arundel. 
Deeds state that in 1791, Joseph sold his land and buildings there for 110 
pounds to a mariner, John Deshon. Also a tract of "50 acres, more or ha. 
in Arundel" to Nathaniel Walker for 240 pounds.

221 



THE FIFTH GENERATION 

he lived his boyhood on the farm, doubtless listcninK ofi 
stories of the York County men under Major Cutis at 1. 
Though Samuel — 5 bought land in Arundel 1770, the ye; 
he sold it in 1773, and subsequently appeared in Alfred, ther. [jart of 
where he enlisted May 3, 1775 for service in the Rev" 
Corporal in Captain Joshua Bragdon's Comjiany, Col. _, 
Regt., with 106 miles' travel allowance to Boston, which would indicate il.. 
he participated in the Battle of Bunker Hill ; Muster Roil c: 1 , 1 77i . 

service 3 months, 6 days; also order for bounty coat o. ..ilont i.. 

money dated Nov. 1, 1775. Meanwhile two children were k.j.tizcd by Ri', 
Mr. Moody of the Old Arundel Church of Christ and ;i :hird at \\'cll>, 
probably while Samuel was in the Army and Lucy tarried at r.L-r parent's home. 
If a house had been started in Alfred, it must have been of the most primi- 
tive type, for before 1770 not more than twenty families " d in the 
Massabesic, later Alfred. After the War, returned soldiers, w. . .its were 
unable to help them in the coastal towns, sought land in the inland towrships 
at reasonable prices. Samuel was a signer of a petition sent out by Coxhall 
and Sanford in 177S. 

Since the proprietors' records of Sanford defaulted during the Revolution 
due to derangement of communication with the English heirs of the Phillips- 
Sanford combine, we have no evidence that Samuel acquired a deed to the 
farm upon which he "settled" in Alfred "near a bend in the road" after his 
return from the War. North Parish Church records name Samuel Cluff or.i- 
of the three, "a committee to manage the prudentials" in 17S3. In 1791 
Samuel Clufr' and John Knight (whose son Nathaniel later married Sai.iuel's 
daughter, Hannah) were chosen "to draw a plan and make sale of gallery 
pews." In 1792 Samuel subscribed 5L. 3s for Pew No. 20 beside John 
Knight's No. 21. In ISOS Samuel and his son, Simon, were signers for 
settlement of the Rev. Mr. Brown. 

The location of Samuel's house is definitely placed when Clerk's record.- 
of Sanford, June 1, 17S4 state that "Roads laid out were accepted . . . from 
Mr. Humphrey Whitten to Mr. Samuel Cluff and thence to Mr. James 
Barrens." In 1794 Samuel Cluff, gentleman, bought the 120 Acres in Water- 
boro which in 1802 he sold to his son Jedediah. In 1909, John Holmes, (v/ho 
Alfred citizens are proud to recall, in 1813, rode to Washington on horseback 
to assume his duties as U. S. senator), representing the Phillips-Sanford heirs.

From the foregoing it is evident that Samuel, against grc: 
become an influential ; . ' 
affairs he belonged to I.. 

and Major in 1799; from this time on he is always entitled "M:;. 
the town books. In deeds he is callc' lan." In 

list of Alfred IS 16 he is taxed, in a . . > the far;:, 

horses, 1 swine, 10 young cattle, 2 oxen, 10 cows, and under "money 
or at interest," a chaise, comparable to owning an "auto" in 1916. "" 
several wagon shops in York County. Seaveys had one in Par. 
there was anotlier in Ncwfield. About 1840 Samuel L. Clough, grandson o: 
Joel — 5 (Samuel's brother), built such a shop in Alfred and Leighton's di.iry 
mentions Samuel L. and his boys getting out chaise spokes. Samuel Lemuel 
Clough was the grandfather of our late genealogist, Samuel C. Clough of 
Boston. 

One of the old Pickwackct Indian trails passed near by, and possibly 
through Samuel's farm which was about a mile from the present Alfred viHa,,j. 
Many Indian relics have been found or plowed out in this area, and at least 
two boulders with corn mortars can be viewed today. The stepping stones in 
the East Branch of the Mousam river were no doubt used by Samuel's family 
if they took the shortest route to town before the bridge was built, otherwise 
it would be necessary to take the circuitous road before mentioned which led 
to the Mouse Lane section without crossing the river. Tradition says that 
a Hamilton woman, migrating from Berwick to Waterboro, was killed by the 
Indians near the stepping stones. 

In 1794 the North Parish of Sanford became the District of Alfred, when 
the first Town Clerk's record book begins. In 180S, the term "Town of 
ALFRED in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts"; in 1S20, "State o: 
Maine." Previous to 1820 the property tax was the measure of voting privi- 
lege. In 1818 the selectmen required the constable to ''warn the male inhabi- 
tants of said Town of Alfred of twenty-one years of age and upwards, havin;; 
a free hold estate within the Commonwealth of the annual income of ccu 
dollars, or any estate to the value of S200, to meet at the Congregational 
Meeting House in said Town, on Monday the sixth of April next, at one of the

Ferguson, a Baptist minister. There are no stones to be fouiu. u.i i... , . 
which must necessarily be those of Samuel — 5 and his family in the ;r ...i 
of the burial ground near the house, but some broken and neglected memorials 
of the Fergusons are still there shaded by a beautiful pine tree which h.is 
sprung up of itself in the center of the lot. 

The Samuel — 5 House is now (1951) in possession of Mr. and Mr.^. 
Linwood Moulton who have made extensive repairs to the interior, but have 
not changed the original contours of the main house. Martha's deed of sale 
speaks of a "large house," and the iloultons say that they had to tear down 
the huge brick ovens in the old kitchen for safety's sake. There were ;:! 
two large chimneys piercing the roof in the main part. Massive hand-;.. . .. 
beams, dove-tailed and pegged, can be seen in the attic. Only one reference 
calls Samuel a Joiner, but his son Jedediah earned his living by that trade. 
Perhaps this "oldest Clough house in Elaine that is still standing" is a com- 
posite v/ork of several members of the family over a period of years. 

The Moultons have been most cooperative with the John Clough Genci- 
logical Society. Robert Clough of the East Waterboro line, a photographer, 
has contributed pictures of Samuel's house. We are very grateful to them all. 

A word should be included about the Noble family who came to Alfred 
as early as 1765. Andrew, son of John and Abigail Noble (who was Snnni'.'i'h 
second wife), was a successful mechanic and invented a threshin 
the principle of which is still in use today. In 1S24 a series of advu. .. .-..i.i.i- 
designed to stimulate sale of this machine appeared in the "Columbian Star" 
a newspaper published in Alfred. Burdened with a large family and financial 
difficulties, Andrew had to sell his property in Alfred. He is said to have 
gone to Parsonsneld where he committed suicide. In 1S34 he was '"Maste:

467— THOMAS (Samuel, Samuel, Samuel, John) Bap. Oct. 29, 1752 .it 
Kittery, Z^Iaine. He was three years of age when his parents rnowa lo 
Arundel. On Oct. 15, 1772 he married Hannah Goodwin, daughter of Benjamin 
and Sarah (Earl or Hearl) Goodwin at Arundel by Rev. Silas Moody. ' 

In the office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth at Boston the 
following information is on file: 

"Petition of Joseph Marquand and others of Newbury, to thj 
Governor and Council, dated Boston, July 14, 1731, stating that 
they fitted out the ship 'Lyon,' of 250 tons burthen, mounting 22 
guns, and navigated by 120 men, and requesting that Wingate 
Newman be commissioned 'Commander.' 

"The name of Thomas Clough appears on descriptive list of 
officers and crew of the ship 'Lion' commanded by Capt. Wingate 
Newman, sworn to at Boston, July 12, 1781; age 30; stature 5 ft. 
8 in.; complexion light; reported on board." 

Papers in the collection of Samuel C. Clough of Boston prove that 
Thomas sailed upon privateers that preyed upon British shipping during the 
Revolution. 

Records show that Thomas and Hannah sold their property in Arundel 
in 1780 and were soon mentioned, about 1782, in Littlefalls Plantation, now 
Dayton, a place repeatedly called in deeds "The Desarts," although only six

Hannah's father and uncle had erected. Title to land was in l 

claims of William Pepperrell extended up the Saco Valley a;. 

Proprietors also owned land here. Thomas was involved ir ' 

property rights, but finally in 17S9 Josiah Waters, the chjv . 

area, sold to Thomas for 21 L, 18 s. a tract, "beginning at a 

and ending at a poplar tree marked on four sides, conlainini; ;> ..^:c^. ..,

was made after his death, to his estate, no doubt, which was adminisierc.i 
by John Goodwin. Thomas and Hannah were listed amon^ the oris'.n:.: 
members of Simon Lock's Baptist Church. Records also prove that Thoina. 
was a cabinet maker in Arundel. 

One of the stories that was passed down from his generation to the 
present may be read on pages 135-138 of the Clough Book. 

Thomas' Will was dated June 1, 1795. A brief extract quotes: 

Thomas Ciuff of Littlefalls Plantation in the County of York 

& Commonwealth of Mass., yeoman, requests that wife 

manage estate until son Thomas is of age, as he feels she cixn best 
bring up his children. Son Thomas to have all his real^ estate 
"excepting 2 acres" and farming utensils and l/24th part of a saw

Son Enoch to be given 2 A. & bound to a trade at 14 yrs. &

Daughter Sarah to be pd. when she is of age — 1 cow and 3 

sheep. 

Daughter Lydia to be given by Thomas when she is of age a

He directs Thomas to care for his mother Hannah and if 
Thomas dies before he becomes 20 years of age, Enoch shall have 
Thomas' share.

"Noah Cluff of Arundel, in addition to fighting in the old French War, 
crouched behind the rail fence at the Battle of Bunker Hill ana ;:;Lrchcd to 
Quebec under Arnold. He was wounded in the attack of Quebec, carHured by 
the British, and imprisoned during the winter of 1775-1776. In May he v.as 
released and returned to Arundel where he learned that his friend Jacob 
Wildes, Jr., an Arundel mariner, had gone to Lake Champlciin in Col. Pinney'.s 
Regiment and did not like it. 

"Being of an amiable di.sposition, and not relishing the way he had been 
treated while in prison, Noah agreed to lake Wildes' place, arguing that he 
had not had a fair chance at the liritish during the attack on Quebec since 
the attack was made in the darkness and during a severe snow.storm. Wlicn 
Wildes was relieved by Cluff, he returned to Arundel and became caplf.in 
of the privateer GREYHOUND. Wildes' perspicacity was shown when one 
of the vessels captured by the GREYHOUND yielded prize mor.cy ..' 

a share. Wildes, a captain, received seven shares or about $2200. i 

after the Revolution he was lost at sea. 

"Although Noah was less perspicacious than Wildes, he did better; .n. 
his services at Lake Champlain made an invalid of him, and after the war he- 
received a pension that made it possible for him to live in idleness for the 
rest of his life."

(Kennebunkport). Without doubt John was the first child of the family o;' 
Samuel — 4 to be born at Arundel. When a lad of seventeen, he joined the 
Continental Army in 1775, walked to Cambridge and probably participatcii 
in the Battle of Bunker Hill with Brother Noah. Both were among the one- 
thousand New England infantry who were ordered by Gen. Washingtori to 
advance under Benedict Arnold upon Quebec. John is mentioned by Kenneth 
Roberts, author of "Arundel", in his account of this disastrous campait;n. 
John walked back to Arundel, and again enlisted for three years in 17S1. 
During this period at home, John married, although no record is found on 
the church list of marriages, the only records that were kept at that time. 
A son, Joseph, was born on June 3, 1782 according to a family Bible belon.L;- 
ing to his youngest grandson. John was discharged at West Point, Dec. 25,

472— JOEL (Samuel, Samuel, Samuel, John) Born at Arundel, :. 
in 1760. At the Maine Historical Society, Portland, in Safe 1, Shelf 22, is. a 
record: "Eighth Infantry Revolutionary manuscripts: Yorii Cuunly. A list 
of the equipment of the train band in Capt. Joshua Nason's Company for 
Aug. 19, 1774 lists, 

Joel Cluff 
I powder, 30 balls, 8 flints." 

His brother, Samuel Clough, in this same list has: 

1 gun, no balls, 6 Hints, no cat. boxes, 1 cuttin-^ ;,v.i. ;(':." 

Evidently these were munitions that these brothers jK:-.M)ii:LUy 
for Joel was about 15 years of age and not eligible to enlislmcnl, yet he ii.i,-;;l 
have been in a training band at Arundel. (Note the spelling of ihc brothers' 
names.) 

On Jan. 25, 17S4, Joel married Dorothy Hutchins. 

According to the papers that Samuel C. Clough, descendant of Joel, 
found in an old trunk at Arundel (Kcnnebunkport) Joel was the only son 
of Samuel — 4 who lived constantly at Arundel. Four years after his marri.ige, 
he bought the homestead from his father on Feb. 7, 17SS. His brother, 
Joseph, received twenty-five pounds from his "Honored Father" and dis- 
charged all claims upon the estate, which indicated that Joseph w;:. 
living in Arundel, but Samuel, the third brother, went to Alfred befo/. 
time according to records that he enlisted from Sanford in 1775. Sister Rh.: !;. 
was to receive a cow at the time of her father's death. Cows, at this tuv.L-. 
were valuable property. Joel paid 200 pounds for the homestead, and agreed 
to turn over to his father all of the profits from the produce of the place 
during his life. Joel was summoned to court for many reasons, several for 
assault, yei he seems to have held the respect of his neighbors, because when 
his house was damaged by fire in 1819, evidently his friends contributed 
small sums to assist in the expense of repairs. No date is recorded of the 
death of Joel or that of his wife. On the roadside which now divides the 100 
acres that Samuel — 4 originally purchased, is a small cemetery. Field stones 
mark several of the graves, and Samuel C. Clough believed that Joel and his

that scores of persons died without leaving a record or a grave stone inscrip-

that carried no disgrace. 

Winthrop settled, as a squatter, on Lot 63 in Range 3, on the 
of Lily Pond, and refused to leave the town. His children were born .. 

In 1776 Winthrop joined the regiment under Col. Timothy Bedell, in 
Capt. John Parker's Co. and marched to Coos, N. H., and across ihe Gr.- .-. 
Mountains to Canada. He served at the siege of St. John on the Sorel ^. •.:.. 
outlet of Lake Champlain and was present at the surrender. He did guard 
duty at Chambley, La Prairie and Isle Aux Xoir. 

Knowing that their term of enlistment had expired, and not being 
notiiied of any discharge, Winthrop with eleven other soldiers started for 
home from a point above Montreal in the late fall. Without food, these men 
almost starved in the forest, but arrived at Weare in Xovember. The men 
were accused as deserters, but no action was taken against them.

511— JOSEPH (Joseph, Joseph, Benoni, John, John) Born Feb. 23, 1772 
at Salem, Mass. It would be worthwhile to discover what reason prompted 
Joseph to leave Salem and travel to Unity, Alaine, according to inio.-.T.ation 
that is given by his great-great-granddaughter, Mrs. Jessemine L. Perkins oi 
Milo, Maine. During the Revolution, Salem, Mass. was the shipping port 
while Boston was blockaded, and Joseph may have seen the timber from 
Camden and decided to settle there after the Revolution. 

By 1800, Joseph had turned south and settled at Clam Cove on the Maine 
coast, now called Glen Cove, near Rockland. He built a home which is stand- 
ing in 1952 in Camden, Maine. When he married Sally is unluiown 

and the family name of his wife also is forgotten, but one of the children was 
born in 1795, probably before Camden became their home.

Levi Clouijh, that he had obtained no ; 

he did not see what right the church had to call upon hi;vi 
he had for several years since joine 

Voted That the case of said Levi v ,. -..- 

meeting of the church and that bro. Bcthuol Wood be req 
inform him of said vote and also request said Levi Clu 

and show cause if any he has why a vote of exco. 

should not then be passed upon him. 

Sept. IS, 1820. Voted Unanimously, that Levi C. 

for many years withdrawn from the Communion of ■.... 

absented himself from the worship of God with us and not only 
so, but has refused to attend communions, or even \n. ! 
with other chh; in fellowship with this chh., and in t:.- :'. 
his residence, and thereby aggravating his covenant enga 
but has (by his own confession) joined himself to a Society v. ...i 
which this chh is not in communion, has disregarded the ma.ny c:iili 
and reproofs of this chh still manifesting no signs of rcpenlence i^ut 
justified himself in his wrong measures, and declares liis ■ 
nation to persevere in the violation of his covenant, and i. 
neglects to hear the chh.; that the said Levi Clough, be cxcomuntr.i- 
catcd from this chh, or in the words of an Apostle "that he be de- 
livered unto Satan, for the destruction of the flesh, that the .spirit 
may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus." 

Voted That the Standing Moderator of the Chh. be requested to 
communicate a copy of ihis vote to Levi Clough. 
Intolerance between religious groups was prevalent in bygone days. The 
only cause for excommunication was that Levi preferred to attend the Metho- 
dist church where he was then living. 

Levi was collector of taxes in 1840 for the town of Cumberland, Maine. 

Probably he owned a brick yard by the following account with Xeal Farwell: 

Sept. the 14, 1855 cent per hund. 

Bricks bought of Levi Clough 5-50 at 50 2.75 

Eleven hundred at 40 cents per hund. 4.40

at Newburyport, Mass. Thomas was born a few months after his father was 
lost at sea, and his mother died of consumption, it is believed. 

This orphan boy probably went to live with relatives in Salisbu.. 
where his cousin, Joseph Clough and two of his sons were s 
Revolutionary War, then went north into New Hampshire i 
Hopkinton. In the History of Henniker, N. H., Thomas C! 
family are recorded. Since no other man named Thomas is 

generation, no doubt this lad followed his cousins. Henniker a:.-. .. ., ..

Thomas married Jcdedah White (often found as Jedediah) and ilicy 
lived in Hopkinton, N. li.

In the presence of Simon Clou;;h 

Barnard Warner. 

Nehemiah became owner of the original homestead of !iis e.. 
.Simon — i. He built a new house at the foot of the hill below th^ _ . . ■_•. 
The following description was written by Clarence F. Clough — 9 of Siorm 
Lake, Iowa: 

"Simon Clough — 4 resided at Hampton Falls, N. H., where his oliiest 
son, Simon, Jr., was born. Their five other sons were bom in Gilmainon, 
N. H. So, Simon must have moved to Gilmanton between 1759 anil 1761, 
and, as I understand it, he received a grant of land of about 600 acres. 

"The original house was built at the top of the hill, overlooking Crysc;:! 
Lake and the valley below. Later a smaller house was built near the brook 
which was west of the original Clough house. The information that I have is 
that the third house where I was born was built before 1792 and I have been 
told that Nehemiah was the first child born in this third house. I iupjjoij 
that Simon — 5 built it. He moved to Barnston, Lower Canada about lt>CO. 

"Nehemiah lived on in the old place all his life and at his death the 
farm went to his son, John Page Clough, who lived on the farm until 1576 
when he sold it to his oldest son, Elbridge G. Clough who was my latncr. 
Elbridge G. lived there until his death in 1914 and at the death of his wife 
in 1919 it was deeded to John B. Clough, his oldest son. 

"The house was originally built as a one story with large double chimnej' 

at the west end with Dutch oven and two fireplaces. There was a small c.l 

, added to tliis, and later a dining-room and kitchen added to this. In about 

i 1903 my father built the small ell up to the same height as the rest of the

hoii.se and made 0:10 l;iri;c liviii^^-rooui ;iL.uul 17 .. 
removed the old chimney and fireplaces which had . 
remodeled ihe west end of the house. 

"There were several larjjc elms, oaks, and roi 
place. This hou.se i.s located one mile ni.rih from i. 
the junction of the road or at the fork where one ;?ue.s 
and the other to Alton Corners." 

Nehcmiah built a house at the foot of the hill which wa.-; .' . 
for five generations. He moved a part of the old house :rc. 
the brook which was his boyhood home. He also moved . 
which was a big ilat boulder. Clarence F. Clough says, "I c. 
Aimt Mary Woodman coming there to the old farm after ihe was . 
blind and she would sit down on the step and feel of it, for a.-> a child it ■.■. 
her favorite place to play." 

Nehemiah died at Gilmanton Iron Works on Feb. 2, 1850 and is bur;.- : 
at Hill Side Cemetery. Sarah died on Dec. 23, 1864.

NOTE. Records are not accurate for this Gilmanton Family. Both 
Simon — 5 and Jonathan — 5 named a son, Simon. The son of Simon — 5 w.i,s 
born in 1792, (4^718). He would have been 33 years of age to marry Mercy 
Elkins on Oct. 6, 1S25. The logical conclusion seems to place Simon, ir730 
the son of Jonathan — 5 as the Simon who married Mercy. Mrs. F..-

Alfred and later Deering Ridge, Waterboro. Nathaniel Knight w-. 
John "Barn" and Lydia (Roberts) Knight, born in Somerswc

Ridge are the graves of Nathaniel and Hannah marked only by .. 
granite, unlettered stones, and his second wife, Eunice Carle in the 
honored posiiion in tlie front row. 

Since the Knights and Cluffs intermarried frequently, their lineage shoul 
be included here. Nathaniel was a descendant of Samuel — 1 of K'; 
about 1649. John Knight was among the early settlers of Alfred, ^.. 
he bought land opposite the Congregational church and built a barn with 
living quarters finished off one end. He resided in this barn and entertained 
travelers so that he is listed as one of the first inn-holders in town. The iirst

Kcnncy in 181 S was kept by Rev. Jcdidiah Tucker of Loudon in his li.-t ir.im

they resided. Jeremiah was a successful farmer. He became a member of the 
Free Will Baptist Church in 1819, and two years after Susan died, he be- 
came a licensed preacher. This decision was "One of the greatest questions of 
his life." He decided to devote his life to the ministry, "upon his knees be- 
neath a tree in the pasture where he erected a monument of stones as a seal 
of his vow of consecration." On Sept. 10, 1840, he married Deliverance 
Hodgdon, daughter of a Quaker, Israel Hodgdon. From 1S3S, when Jeremiah 
was ordained, he was an evangelist until 1848, when he became the pastor of 
the Free Will Baptist Church in Canterbury. He continued in this church 
until 1872 but was obliged to retire after a partial shock or paralysis. 

Jeremiah was "a man of large social qualities possessing true affability 
of manners which made his home social, agreeable and always pleasant in his 
family and full of hospitality to friends and strangers." He held several town

In a letter from Mrs. Jessamine L. Perkins, a fireat granddauf;htcr of Joseph 
Cloush-6, she writes: "My father said that his grandfather came from Unity, 
Maine to Camden, now Rockport. .\s I was writin;; this story came to me 
that my father told when I was a girl at home. The first Cloush dame from 
France sent by the Queen when America was first discovered. We descended 
from him on the Clough side. Then one came from Scotland, man or woman I 
know not, one from England, one from Holland. They married so we have 
quite a mix up of blood and you could see it in father's people. I was told 
that my grandfather, John Clough, was called "Dutch Johnie" or Johnie 
Dutch." 

This letter is included here, because another line oi Cloughs claim that 
their ancestors came from the Continent and settled at Booth Bay Harbor in 
1623 or earlier. Also a colony of German emigrants settled in Waldoboro, 
Maine in 1748, not Cloughs, and they may have mingled with the early 
settlers along the coast of Maine. 

John married Ann Maria Coombs, daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth 
(Gamble) Coombs, a soldier in the Revolution, mill owner, lime burner and 
ship builder. The manufacture of lime became one of the chief industries of 
this region.

.August 14, ISIO at Springfield, Mass. On May 24, 1832 he married Lucy 
Humphrey at Pelham, Mass., born at Littleton, Mass., daughter of Noah and 
Mary (Parker) Humphrey. 

They resided at South Hadley Falls, Mass. On April 19, 1841 they 
removed to Chicopee Falls, Mass., then a part of Springfield. Joseph was a 
blacksmith and carriage maker. He was successful in his business and his 
Concord buggies were very popular in Western Massachusetts. 

Physically, he was a very strong man. He made two trips to California 
in the "gold rush" with his son, Henry who drove a mule team to carry gold 
to the mint. In the second trip he secured more gold but in returning he was 
shipwrecked coming around South .America, and to save his life, was obliged 
to cut away his belt with the gold he carried. 

Mrs. Lucy Clough was a woman of strong religious character, a prominent 
and active member of the Methodist Church, one who gave much time to 
nursing the sick of the community and came to be known as "Mother Clough." 
She was fond of flowers and most successful in raising them, generously donat- 
ing them to the sick and others who enjoyed them. 

Joseph died on July 8, 1883 and Lucy on August 2, 1890 and they are 
buried in the East Street Cemetery at Chicopee Falls, Mass.

TIIK SIIVKNTH GKNKUATIOX 

The llislory of Windham County, by I'Mcn I^irncd nl the M.irti;i;i 
College Library, Vol II, rn^c 341 stales: "In llic Rri-al m«>vemci»t \Vr>uvard 
. . . Killinjily was di-iply intcrcslwl . . . Dr. Manass;ili Cutlt-r's mim, I'.;ili:.uin, 
then residing with his aged Rrandfathcr in Killinnly, acted as amnt I'nr ihc 
company and prevailed upon sonie twenty Windham County citizens lo take 
shares in the purchase." This purchase refers to "Tl)c 01)io Company" thai 
was promotins; settlement of land along the Ohio River. The Diary of Theo- 
philus Knight describes the "Rufus Putnam Party" that went from Connec- 
ticut about 1737 to Ohio. "They were followed when the spring opened 
(178S) by other men from the vicinity of Killingly." .Xmong this band were 
Aaron Clough and Benjamin Converse. Probably Aaron intended to return 
for his family, but after the death of his wife, he remained in Ohio, m;i.-ricd 
again and died there in 1823. Evidently the baby son, .Aaron, was broUr'.u up 
by relatives in Killingly or Thompson, Conn, (sec page 272, No. 678-, Aaron- 
6) Also, (page 168, No. 321-Aaron-S). 

A letter from Mrs. Clara Oaks Holdren, of Marietta, Ohio, a great- 
granddaughter of Aaron Clough, recently produced additional information 
about the children of Aaron and Sarah Delano, listed upon page 169: 

679 — Sarah married Mr. Green, .•\fter his death, she went to California 
to live with her sister, Cynthia and is buried in California. 

680 — Julia Oaks probably should have been Lydia who married Daniel 
Oaks. 

681 — Seymour was born in 1815 and died September 10, 1888. 

682— Mary E. was born February 3, 1820 and died October 19, 1S91. 

683 — Cynthia married Mr. Knowles, lived in California all of their lives. 
Mrs. Holdren mentioned sons David and Morris, and also Hiram who pur- 
chased in 1836 of the Leavens heirs "v/hat is now the Elliott farm, later re- 
moved to Iowa." John Leavens was one of the men who were in the party 
with Aaron Clough that went from Killingly, Conn, to Ohio in 17SS. Mrs. 
Holdren also wrote: "Another son who in his later years was genial, whole 
souled 'Uncle Seymour' to old and young, far and near, lived on the Home- 
stead. He married Mary Hitchcock at the age of 28. After the death of Sey- 
mour, his nephew, Silas Bent Oakes bought the farm and it is now owned by 
his son, George Wells Oakes." 

The above information confirms the lineage of Aaron Clough, son of 
Obadiah-4, and his descendants in Connecticut and in Ohio.

Isaac Clough in 1728 had been destroyed by fire and in the spring of ISsl 
the new house his father had built was ready for occupancy. It ' 
designed in a duplex fashion so two families could live in it. Their . 
Ada Ellen, was born here in IS58. 

In 18S9 he became clerk of the Con;,'rci;ational Church, a position •• 
he held for many years. Ik- was treasurer for at least live years and tr... ., .•

His father and grandfather each gave him a piece of land when he 
married and in the census of 1860 he was still listed a.'; 
business which had been carried on in homes of the worl. 
being transferred to shops, at least one of which was at Salem Depot, and he 
seems to have given up his business as soon as he bocimc ' ■ - ' 
affairs. In 1866 his father died and a large share of the C. 
willed to the son. He enlarged, renovated and improved tJic ui.. 

succeeding years. He was elected a selectman of the town in 1867, ^ 

the position for five terms. He also served the town as auditor, supervisor of 

the check list, member of the Pine Grove Cemetery Committee 

of the Poor. He held the office of Town Treasurer for 14 years, t;.

In 1SS8 agitation was be^un in town for the pul

much of interest to the Cloughs has been incorporated in this . 
chairman, William G. CrowcU, attempted to give his report b,. 
to complete it because of noise and confusion going on at ihi. 
The attempt was given up at that time. Levi was a member of this l 
and nothing further was done during his lifetime. In 1894 money w.i^ i... . . 
for it and Anally in 1907 the town history of Salem was published. 

He kept many diaries mostly the latter years of his life and from thir 
many of the details of his daily living can be studied. He was . - • " 
man, dependable in judgment and careful in all his acts. He v. 
for many offices although he did not seek them himself. Hi.'> iucdcn and un-

think of his niece's daughter, Edith G. Frederick, as his possiLic heir and 
survivor. The two were close pals and the silver cup he gave her still is pre-

her ancestors, Isaac, and the others. He told her the story of Wyr.. :.-. C!(;i:^;h

been taken prisoner in the French and Indian War, and who had spent a year

Timothy and Mirriam C Wcarc. Considering the age of Timothy, 

Miss Allen's genealogy i.s . ^ correct. 

JABISH OF CHARLESTON, VT. 

.Another lost ClutT is Jabish who is listed as an added voter in Charleston, 
\'ermont in 1320. There were 11 families with 12 voters in 1313 in this town 
that is not far from the Canadian Line. 

Since Cloughs from Gilmanton, N. H., and Durham, N. H., went to 
Stanstead and to Barnston, Canada after the Revolution, this Jabish may be 
a descendant who crossed the line into Vermont. No Jabish or Jabez can be 
found in Maine or New Hamsphire for 1S20. Children of Jabish were in 
Concord, \'ermont and later removed to Iowa and Minnesota. To date, no 
records have been discovered in Canada.
